Agile Fundraising - Dragon's Den Pitch

Dance UK at City Hall London

Agile Fundraising - Dragon's Den Pitch
10 Apr 2015 9:30 am BST
Dance UK's Agile Fundraising Training

In the finale of Dance UK’s Agile Fundraising Programme, dance artists will pitch their ideas for creative projects to a dragon’s den panel of wealthy donors to win funding for their proposal. The Agile Fundraising Programme has been designed to help participants to unmask techniques to attract support from individuals. 

Supported by Arts Council England’s Catalyst scheme and Cause4’s Arts Fundraising and Philanthropy, the programme has featured internationally recognised experts within arts fundraising and included interactive sessions designed to guide participants on how to raise funds with confidence and tackle the fear of fundraising. 

This event is part of Dance UK’s industry wide conference titled The Future: New Ideas, New Inspirations taking place across six amazing venues in London from the 9 – 12 April.
