The ACED Essentials in Fundraising workshop was fantastically put together and delivered. I had some previous experience in fundraising but came away with new skills and ideas that enabled me to secure funds in the following weeks from sources that I had previously not known about. David from Cause4 was so knowledgeable and engaging, fundraising can sometimes feel like a daunting prospect but I came away with a renewed sense of purpose. Thank you ACED for creating this great day!” Sarah White, Co-Artistic Director, Four of Swords.
