A gift of fundraising help for parishes

Ecclesiastical Insurance is providing free practical fundraising support and guidance for churches in the Diocese of St Albans.

They are trialling two options: fundraising seminars and a funding insights website. During the trial, they are aiming to understand what works best for your Church, so that they can look to target their support where it is the most important to you.



Ecclesiastical’s church customers in the Diocese of St Albans are invited to attend one of two knowledge sharing seminars. These seminars are practical and interactive, with time for your questions.

The 7 steps of asking for a gift

This seminar will provide guidance on how to find and engage donors, taking the fear out of asking for financial support and understanding the importance of timing.

  • Tuesday 19th November, 7pm – 9pm
  • St Peter de Merton, Bedford, MK40 2TX.

How to approach legacy fundraising

Raising money from gifts in wills has long been an underexplored area for many Churches and charities. Philanthropy Company’s legacy fundraising expert will address the fundamentals of legacy fundraising to help you plan a strategy and start conversations with potential donors.

  • Wednesday 13th November, 7pm – 9pm
  • Holywell Lodge, St Albans, AL1 1HE.
Please note spaces are limited. They will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. If there is significant demand, more dates may be added.
