UK Community Foundations

Challenge

UK Community Foundations (UKCF) leads a national network of community foundations bringing together people and organisations that want to improve their communities. UK Community Foundations asked for our support to deliver a series of bespoke philanthropy training sessions, tailored to an audience of community foundation staff.

Response

We delivered four bespoke sessions on: Prospect Research, Making the Ask, Engaging High Net-Worth Individuals and Engaging Professional Advisors. Sessions were developed with a focus on the particular strengths and challenges of Community Foundations’ fundraising. Across the summer 2023, experienced members of the Philanthropy Company team delivered the four engaging and interactive sessions online.

Impact

“We engaged Philanthropy Company to create bespoke philanthropy training for our members. They were a pleasure to deal with when planning the training, and delivery was very good. Trainers were prepared, professional, and engaging, and covered what was requested in the brief.”
