Resourcing Scotland’s Heritage (RSH)
RSH is a three-year, Scotland-wide training programme designed to provide Scotland’s diverse heritage sector with the vital tools required to increase fundraising income from private sources.
The programme is open to all staff, volunteers and trustees with the heritage sector including:
- Projects in green spaces and urban environments
- Historical buildings and environment
- Museums, galleries and other heritage venues
- Voluntary and community groups working within heritage
The training incorporates:
- ‘Make it Happen’ – A one-day introduction to fundraising covering the tools and techniques needed to raise income from private sources.
- ‘Planning to Progress’ – A one-day course providing heritage organisations with the opportunity to develop a fundraising strategy.
- ‘In Focus’ – Expert-led events exploring one fundraising topic such as ‘Annual Giving’, ‘Legacies’, ‘Crowdfunding’ and ‘Trusts & Foundations’.
All events provide opportunities for networking and experience sharing and conversations can be continued online with the RSH Forum.
Training courses can be booked online via the RSH website where a wealth of information and resources can also be found http://www.resourcingscotlandsheritage.org/

I thought people might find it useful to know that Giving to Heritage (a Catalyst Umbrella project) will be holding thirty webinars on a number of innovative themes relating to heritage and fundraising over the next year.
The first is on April 28 at 11am where Simon Opie, CEO, Hastings Pier Charity, will talk about the restoration of the pier following a devastating fire in 2010 and how community shares have been an integral part of the charity’s fundraising efforts.
There’s no fee to join and sessions are open to anyone involved in a heritage fundraising project across the UK. You can sign up on the Giving to Heritage website.
The new Resourcing Scotland's Heritage programme has been announced! We have events taking place across Scotland from May 2015 to March 2016. For further information please visit the website - http://www.resourcingscotlandsheritage.org/training-and-events/
