Creative Internships Blog Week 27
Week 23: Johnny Dawson, Hijinx Theatre
You win some, you lose some.
That’s how the old saying goes. And in the world of fundraising, I think it’s important to bear in mind day-to-day. This month it was my time to learn that lesson, since I won some and lost some.
The good news is that applications made by myself to secure grants which would allow us to establish a new Academy for young people in North Wales have been successful!
The bad news is that an application for a large core grant that I made was unsuccessful. It was a little bit disappointing since I had a great feeling about it, and both myself and my manager felt I’d written a very strong application. But as I discussed with fellow fundraisers since receiving the news, the “no’s” are all part of the job.
That said, the wins make it totally worth it. It was a real boost to have those successes, and I feel spurred on by them to keep working even harder to achieve more for the company.View all news
