Raising money for Child.org

I loved the fact that you were encouraged to be ambitious and creative throughout the tasks, and were really supported with helping make these exciting visions a reality. The fundraising module was so versatile - from running Harry Potter quizzes to recruiting and managing a team for my Under The Breadline challenge fundraiser.

Heather, Charity Fast-Tracker 2016

Do I have to raise money to pass the course?

Yes. Raising money is a crucial part of any charity.

We teach you all about the different ways to do it – but learning how isn’t enough. Employers will want to see that you’ve had real experience of doing it (and doing it like a professional does it).

Is there a target?

Yes. It’s £1,500. To complete the course, you will complete a series of practical fundraising challenges throughout the year, raising money for Child.org.

If you do them all, you will raise money. This figure is a guide to how much you should raise, as a minimum, through your challenges. The whole point of the course is to show you how to do things like a professional, so this target is set at a level that would be reasonable to be expected for a beginner fundraising professional.
