Esmee Fairbairn Funding Masterclass - postponed until further notice
In 2017, the Esmee Fairbairn Foundation allocated £40.5 million in funding to a wide range of projects via grants, alongside a £45 million allocation to social investments. The foundation supports organisations whose work is focused on the arts, children and young people, the environment, food or social change. When applying for the fund, you will need to be able to demonstrate that your organisation’s annual income is in excess of £50,000; the foundation makes very few awards to start-ups. Therefore, this training is less applicable to smaller organisations.
Join our funding advisor to learn how to put your best foot forward when applying to Esmee Fairbairn. By the end of this one day training you will have:
- understood the key criteria for each of the programmes run by the foundation and have some top tips for developing your project ideas
- learned methods for developing and presenting your project, taking into account key priority areas for the different programmes
- learned about evidencing need and developing project outcomes and impact
- explored methods for developing your project budget
- discussed common reasons why applications are rejected, so that you can avoid the pitfalls
- explored techniques for writing high quality funding applications
If you are considering developing an application to one of the Esmee Fairbairn Foundation programmes, this training is for you.
If you are new to project development and bid writing, we recommend that you attend our Introduction to Fundraising training first. That session is taking place on Thursday 13 February 2020 - click here to visit the Introduction t o Fundraising page. If you have missed it, contact our Capacity Building team to arrange a meeting.
Please note: all of our funder specific masterclasses have been designed using our in-house experience of working with applicants to prepare and submit successful bids to the referenced funder. In the 2018/19 period, this experience enabled us to secure over £5m of funding for community projects. Where content includes specific input from the funder, this will be explicitly referenced in the description of the session.
