Training / Trustee trainingBlack Country Creative People and Places
Sarah Gee ran a strategic away day for the board, to help them understand the potential for fundraising within the context of a time-limited programme and limited staff resources. This included a realistic audit of fundraising assets, timelines to success for the five main sources of income for arts charities, and a series of pledges as to what each board member could contribute to the fundraising process.
Sarah was hugely helpful in ensuring that the board understood what was practical and pragmatic for us to achieve, and skilled at involving all members of staff and trustees in the day’s discussions. This fed into our business planning, and we achieved far more - and more consensus! - with Sarah’s experience than we could possibly have managed otherwiseSajida Carr, Programme Director
