Increasingly, we see funders asking charities and community groups to use data and evaluation to evidence why the work they do is worthy of funding. Simple uses of data and evidence can help you better tell the story of your organisation, describe the people you help, establish why your work is needed, and clearly demonstrate the difference you make. This course will equip you with practical approaches to thinking about the who, why, what, how and when of your organisation’s work. Throughout the course you will learn how to answer these important questions and apply them to your bid writing.

In this course you will learn where to find the evidence you need and how to use it. You will be supported to more effectively communicate this information in your bid writing to increase your chances of success.

This course is designed to be friendly and accessible, giving both new and experienced fundraisers effective tools that you can take away and put into practice. Attendees will have access to advice and guidance from experienced experts in data and evaluation for the third-sector. This course will guide you through how to navigate and analyse information to make more efficient use of your fundraising efforts.

This course will cover a range of key learning points:

Learn how to use available information better to communicate need and the difference your work makes;
Think about how to draw on your previous projects;
Identify and use freely available existing sources of data;
Find simple ways to evaluate and measure the impact of your projects;
