Diversify Your Income

Museums Development East and West Midlands are delighted to be working with Arts Fundraising & Philanthropy to run a Diversify Your Income programme in Autumn 2023.

Programme Aim: This support will allow museums and heritage sites across the Midlands to explore and launch new income streams, with support through training and coaching, enabling them to become more resilient organisations.

The intensive programme will allow 6 organisations from each region to benefit from hands on support as they diversify their income, incorporating:

  • Group sessions: three two-hour workshops focussing on (1) setting goals for the programme, (2) developing pitching and communication skills, and (3) a concluding presentation on progress to key stakeholders.
  • Coaching: each participant will access two one-hour coaching sessions with an expert in their new area of income, benefitting from guidance, knowledge sharing and a sounding board for new ideas.
  • Network building: support and advice between group sessions through a moderated Slack group, allowing participants to share successes and challenges and build a supportive network in the region.
  • Training: a programme of eight two-hour workshops on specific topics around income generation, presenting key theory and case studies and allowing for discussion on practical application.

The programme will run from September 2023 to January 2024, with an expected time-commitment of 1 day per month. Additional work will be required to apply learning to active income diversification between sessions.

How to apply:

For interested organisations who would like to know more we will be holding a Q and A event with Programme Leaders Arts, Fundraising and Philanthropy on the 21 June 12-1pm which is open for anyone to attend without obligation. You can register here.
