“The funny thing about training programmes is that you never realize how useful they are until you’ve completed one!”
This programme is designed to improve the Sustainability, Fundraising Capabilities and Leadership Potential of Charities and Social Enterprises. The self-improving programme was founded in 2016 following the very successful Avocado pilot project launch.
Our experience over the last four years, along with overwhelming supporting evidence, demonstrates that these enterprises benefit significantly from ‘intense capacity building support’ if they are ever to maximise their potential as a group.
That means bespoke training and support in areas such as governance, finance and leadership are needed in order to maximise fund-raising activities.
This programme helps qualifying groups to move fitfully on to the next stage of their development, equipping them with the tools and the confidences they need to survive and thrive. In short, we tap and extend their potential.
The complete programme offers a broad mix of training, governance, finance, coaching and income diversification interventions.
The programme has the virtue of making the complex appear simple, by boiling down complications into individual stories told by consultants with whom you can relate.
Conversation really matters. That’s how you get to new thinking.
By the end of the programme, we expect groups to have increased their effectiveness, their potential impact on beneficiaries and their confidence levels about fund-raising.
If you’re interested in joining the programme review the dates for our next academic year.
The AVOCADO+ UK Accelerator programme is a collaboration between MONEY4YOU, RACE ON AGENDA (ROTA) and BLACK FUNDRAISERS UK (BFUK).
