Are you working in public engagement in botanic gardens or other museums/natural heritage organisations and looking for funding to kick-start new activities and projects?

This BGEN training event, which is being coordinated by the Heritage Lottery Fund, will bring together representatives from the Lottery, as well as relevant Trusts and Foundations to present their funding portfolios and provide top tips for a successful application.
You will also hear case studies on how to identify and approach the right funders, developing long term relationships with funders and planning for your project fundraising.

This training day is also relevant for the fundraising staff of your organisations and will provide a unique opportunity to get informed about raising funds. There will also be time to network, all in the beautiful surroundings of Chelsea Physic Garden, with its great botanical and heritage history.
