Main Document 0.47 MB


The Strategic Planning and Fundraising Programme formed part of MLA‟s Action for Archives Programmes. It combined and developed methods successfully piloted by the following initiatives: The Strategic Planning and Influencing Mentoring Programme 2007-08 which delivered a strategic planning and change management capacity building programme for 8 archive services across 4 English regions The Fundraising Mentoring Programme 2007-08 which provided one-to-one consultancy on fundraising to 6 organisations.

Aims of the programme
Action for Archives provided practical support and development to build the capacity of England‟s archives to achieve the Archive Task Force‟s vision of “An archival heritage unlocked and made open to all citizens in a way that engages them and empowers them to use archives for personal, community, social and economic benefit.”

This vision informed the Strategic Planning and Fundraising programme‟s aims to provide a cross sample of English archives workforces with practical and transferable skills in planning, strategic management, fundraising and advocacy in order to bring archives to all citizens.
