This has been one of the most popular courses run by CFG, and for good reason. In one day it manages to introduce people to all the big issues in charity finance, and provides an excellent base of knowledge. The presenters are all experts and can illustrate their subjects with relevant case histories. Supporting handouts and good refreshments, all in a West End venue, make this an ideal way to get to grips with some of the trickier issues.
