The Management in Civil Society, Marketing and Fundraising course is accredited by the Institute of Fundraising (IoF), and will be of interest to senior marketing managers or fundraisers in the voluntary and charity sectors.
This course provides a rounded professional understanding of the legal requirements, theories and practices of management in the civil society sector. It focuses on the two functional disciplines vital to any operation: the effective raising and management of funds.
The core objectives of the Charity Marketing and Fundraising course include:
As a result, the course contains a mix of academic and vocational subjects ranging from core marketing to more specialist subjects such as online fundraising and other advanced fundraising techniques.

The Diploma is followed by individual supervised research study leading to dissertation on an approved chosen subject. This must be in the area of Marketing and Fundraising for the award of the Masters in Civil Society (Marketing and Fundraising).
Significant research methodology will have been taught and developed during the Diploma modules but to enhance the development of these skills students will be expected to join a three day Summer School following the completion of the Diploma year. This residential period will enable students to work together on the development of theories and concepts, developing appropriate approaches and methodologies together with their Facilitators and Tutors.
The course should help you progress to senior positions in fundraising and marketing management. Recent evidence shows that even at the PgDip stage students have been successful in gaining promotions in their own or in external charities or professional firms advising charities.
