We launched these free, monthly sessions in response to feedback for a fundraising and network forum from VAAC members.

The meetings are held on a different fundraising topics on the second Thursday of the month, 9.30am – 12.30pm at Bersted Green Learning Centre, Bersted and are free to all voluntary and community groups in Arun and Chichester districts. 

As a way for us to meet more groups out in the community, the meetings are proving to be a forum not just for fundraising debate but peer support, information exchange and informal training and networking. The format is a mixture of guest speakers discussing a fundraising related topic, coupled with a Questions and Answers session and discussion from the floor. 

Since November 2014, we have had 80 community groups and over 100 people attend one or more of the meetings.

Please book via Eventbrite
