What is Fundraising for Archives?
Fundraising for Archives (FfA) is a development programme for archives, aimed at equipping the sector with fundraising skills, transforming income generation by services, and helping to tackle the financial conditions we are all facing. We are providing practical training, mentoring and online resources.
FfA has received a £477,000 grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund’s Catalyst programme and is running from February 2016 until December 2017. We are working in partnership with the Archives and Records Association (ARA), the Scottish Council on Archives (SCA), the Museums, Archives and Libraries Division of the Welsh government (MALD) and the Public Records Office of Northern Ireland (PRONI), aiming to reach as many people across the UK as possible.
How does it work?
We are offering training to archive professionals in two different formats. Archives can either join a cohort group and participate in a six-month training programme, or you can sign up for individual ‘open call’ events. We have also published online resources (available below) and you can join our online community on LinkedIn.
