Fundraising News: BME training group reaches landmark

The 50th trained fundraiser has qualified on a course run by the Black Training and Enterprise Group (BTEG) to increase the number of black and minority professional fundraisers from London.

The programme, funded by the London Development Agency, was set up in 1991 by black voluntary organisations to address the fact that many did not have the resources to train fundraisers.

BTEG director Jeremy Crook said: "Black voluntary sector organisations can be suspicious of partnerships, but often we ignore what good can come out of them.

"So far we have forged strong links with 50 organisations through pro-active support and advice to ensure that trainee participants achieve their individual and organisational aims."
