ICP Learning and Legacy conference, February 2018: delegate pack

Since 2014, the ‘Inspiring a Culture of Philanthropy’ project has offered a bespoke programme of fundraising support for participating museums in the Hampshire and Solent region to help them build their capacity and skills to fundraise from private donors, corporate sources, trusts and foundations.

The project was due to end in 2017 but due to a successful extension bid, the project ended in March, 2018.

Between 2014 and 2016, 28 museums and heritage organisations joined the project and formed cohorts. The cohort model helped participants build connections which can be sustained beyond the life of the project. Each cohort completed the core training and attended bespoke training sessions and workshops. In addition, mentoring and peer learning sessions were offered to the museums. A Project Advisory Group made up of donors from the philanthropic and business community advised the project team and engaged with participating museums giving invaluable feedback and insight from a donor perspective.

The aim of this conference was to bring all the stakeholders involved together to share learning and experiences and to plan the project legacy.
