Get Practical Fundraising Experience

At the heart of this learning is a practical fundraising challenge, helping to support Child.org’s vital work in Kenya and Sierra Leone.

With coaching from fundraising experts, and with support from a dedicated mentor (one of our course graduates), you’ll demonstrate the ability to plan, lead and evaluate a volunteer-fuelled fundraising project to a professional standard. We’ll also help you understand how fundraising happens under social distancing rules.

The more you raise, the more modules you unlock.

You’ll gain a record of creating social impact on your CV, and you’ll have a great time doing it.  Since 2015 Charity Fast-Trackers have raised over £350,000 for Child.org.

Fundraising Platform
Fundraise in teams to maximise your impact

“Charity Fast-Track gave me the opportunity to follow my heart with a career change I otherwise would have found really daunting and unachievable.

Less than a year after completing the course I’m moving to my second fundraising role with Mencap. I couldn’t be more grateful for the confidence the course has given me”

    Adam Cunnane, Civil Service Fast-streamer (verified owner)

    I’ve loved my time on the Charity Fast-Track Foundation Course; it’s been a great opportunity to learn about a sector with which I was previously very unfamiliar and put my newfound knowledge and skills into practice. I couldn’t have done my new role without it – and have made so many new friends along the way.

    Holly, Cahoots Co-Working Space (verified owner)

    The Foundation course has helped accelerate our Cahoots Manager’s ability to connect with the charity sector’s challenges and needs. The insight and practical experience the course provides has enhanced her business development skills and enabled her to feel more confident in her role. We see the Charity Fast-Track training courses as a great way for our staff to develop personally and deliver impact for the organisation.

  3. 5 out of 5

    Child.org (verified owner)

    We put all our new starters on the Foundation course. It does the essential ground work so we can focus on supporting individuals in their specific roles. The fundraising challenge, no matter what our staffs’ roles are, enhances their communication, engagement and influencing skills.

    We are time-poor like all small charities and see a clear return on investment with the Foundation course.
