Women’s Resource Centre are delighted to launch a 6-week Fundraising Coaching Programme for women’s charities and organisations in the UK.

Up to 15 organisations will have the opportunity to have 6 x 1 hour free coaching & consultancy sessions with an expert fundraising coach, Emma Collins or Helen Cylwik.

Who is it for?

For women’s charities and organisations in the UK. See below for prioritised applications.


6 x 1 hour sessions, weekly (or equivalent) between March 1st 2021 – 7th May 2021

Exact timings for the sessions will be arranged by successful applicants and their coach.


Sessions will be conducted online, via Zoom. For this reason, a reliable internet connection and access to Zoom is essential. We will endeavour to accommodate any access requirements.

What will the sessions cover?

This will be shaped by the needs of the organisation e.g. working on a specific application. The session will:

  • develop your fundraising skills
  • improve your ability to successfully identify and apply for funding
  • provide you with specialist 1-1 tailored support

How to apply?

Applications are open from Wednesday 17th February - Wednesday 24th February (12pm). This may be extended depending on volume of applications.

This opportunity is now closed.

The aim of the programme is to provide support to small organisations who are not able to afford fundraising support and do not have a dedicated fundraising officer (or equivalent).

Applications will be prioritised from:

  • small women's charities / organisations
  • organisations led by and for Black & minoritised women
  • organisations based outside of London
  • WRC Sisterhood members (you can apply to join our membership here)
