Community Fundraising training

This is a 'back-to-basics' Community Fundraising training course. With 8-modules, set over 10 weeks that will cover everything you need to be an awesome community fundraiser.

  • Understanding your audience

  • Powerful conversations

  • Tiering and pipelines (reactive vs proactive fundraising)

  • Stewardship

  • Fundraising products and innovation

  • Marketing and copywriting

  • Storytelling

  • Volunteer Management

Modules and work are designed to take you up a gear in your fundraising. You know the groups and audiences that make up a community programme - but how do you truly empower and motivate them to make the most of those important relationships?

The course is designed to be a mixture of interactive 'listen and learn' sessions, group coaching and solo work that will be directly and immediately relevant and tangible to your organisation - wherever you are in your community fundraising journey.

This intake runs September - November and is suitable for

• Small charity fundraisers

• Sole fundraisers 

• Fundraising Assistants and Community fundraisers who have been doing it for a year, or two - or three!
and now need formal training to develop the skillsets that will help build and drive sustainable income. 

"This course gave me everything I was looking for: a full understanding of community fundraising and how to start from scratch being successful in it in the short and long term.
During this course itself, I used the practices that Sarah taught and secured multiple meetings with brand new community groups!"

Konna Beeson , Fundraising Manager, Props Bristol


I have a number of packages, each designed to fit your needs. I can also create a bespoke support package for you or your team member.


If you're interested in coaching, email me to book a free discovery call to see if coaching is right for you.  

"I got the job!  Thank you so much for taking the time to slot in a coaching at such short notice. Your support and encouragement instilled me with the confidence to believe in myself and, rather than be my own worst critic, to be my biggest cheerleader - so thank you, thank you, thank you. 
I am so excited to start this new chapter​ - making a difference and inspiring others to do the same. Thank​ you for inspiring me.​"

Emma Heinicke, Fundraising Professional ​

Bespoke training and workshops

I also co-create, lead and deliver bespoke in-house training, either as part of a bigger piece of consultancy work, or unique to your teams needs. Whether it's Away Day facilitation, a half day session on effective stewardship or something completly bespoke - let me know how I can inspire, motivate and teach your team. 

I also regularly speak at sector events, networks and training. I've previously delivered independent workshops and training for Raisely, Fundraising Everywhere, Justgiving, Benefact, City Bridge Trust, CIoF Scotland and Hospice Income Generation Network.  

Join my Facebook group

I've set up a group for all fundraisers working in Public Fundraising to come together. You might specialise in one area across Individual Giving, Community or Events, or perhaps you bring a few of those areas together.

Whatever your role, this group is a place for people who inspire individuals to give to and donate to their charities.
