This course aims to:
- Develop a clear understanding of the principles and practices of funding
- Explore the importance of all aspects of the management of funding
- Develop skills in problem solving, risk assessment and probity of applications
- Explore ethical frameworks within funding
Students should be highly motivated managers and will normally have a good first degree, a related professional qualification or at least three years wholly relevant experience.
The “core” of the P, G & SI programme follows the structure of Peter Grant’s book The Business of Giving: The Theory and Practice of Philanthropy, Grantmaking and Social Investment (Palgrave, 2011). This is supplemented by external speakers covering other topics and/or providing case studies. The latter are not the same every year.
