Title: Writing Funding Bids – a workshop for those new to fundraising


Description: Money is tight these days.  But there are sources of funds around and with a well written bid, they are not impossible to get.  Often we limit ourselves because we haven’t got time or we find the whole bid-writing process too difficult.  This workshop will take participants through the process of writing a well constructed bid.  We will be looking at the Awards for All scheme as an example, but the skills will apply to any funding bid.


The workshop will be led by Mohammed Mamdani who is the founder and director of Al-Mizan Charitable Trust and a trustee of FbRN. He has 12 years’ experience in supporting small, grassroots charities with fundraising, project management and governance.

Cost: The workshop costs £5 to cover our admin and refreshment costs only but we request a refundable deposit of £25.  Payment of £30 to be made in advance and £25 refunded after attendance.

The workshop is free to participants in the FbRN, Birmingham University research project in Handsworth and Birmingham.
