KSFM runs a popular Charity Strategy Training Programme. Our bespoke modules are created specifically to equip the modern charity professional or trustee with an up-to-date and rigorous appraisal of relevant subject areas, within a rapidly changing and unpredictable environment. These sessions are hosted by experts with a wealth of experience in the voluntary sector.

Following the re-launch of our KSFM Charity Strategy Training Programme in the summer, we’re pleased to announce dates for autumn 2017. Aimed at fundraisers, executive staff and trustees, these modules will help keep you up-to-date with strategic fundraising and management issues.

Each module costs £175 + VAT, and includes lunch, training materials and exclusive post-module networking with KSFM alumni. A place on all four courses can be booked for £600 + VAT, saving you £100.

Places will be strictly limited to create optimum learning. Please book your place early to avoid disappointment.

Bespoke Training Courses

If more than eight people on your team need training, our bespoke in-house training is an excellent alternative to the public courses. Existing course material will be adapted with examples, case studies and exercises tailored specifically to your charity.


Our experienced consultants can facilitate your Board/staff away days or planning sessions. We take an objective view, ask difficult questions and present new ideas as a prelude to change. We help staff and Boards to review their vision, mission and values to achieve consensus on the way forward together.
