YAF x RAISE West Midlands coffee morning

An opportunity for networking, reflection and to share ideas with other arts fundraisers in the West Midlands.

We’re excited to announce our next coffee morning in our regional coffee morning series, delivered in partnership with the Chartered Institute of Fundraising’s RAISE programme.

Calling fundraisers in the West Midlands: join us on Wednesday 11 May at 09:45-10:30 for a coffee and an opportunity for networking, reflection and to share ideas with other fundraisers in the region.

The coffee morning will be chaired by Eman Bhatti (she/her), Board Member in the National Development team at Young Arts Fundraisers. Eman is based in the Black Country and focuses on trusts and foundations fundraising, and joined YAF in January 2021.


Eman will be joined by Yvonne Gregory from Creative Black Country, a Creative People and Places Programme that works with communities to explore and develop creative projects for and by local people. Yvonne will introduce CBC and detail the various opportunities that they offer for fundraisers.

Yvonne’s role is to develop and coordinate fundraising activities to help Creative Black Country realise its ambitious programme of work and to build fundraising networks across the region. She has gained over 25 years experience of the arts sector, working as a fundraiser and project manager for some of the Midlands’ most prestigious and innovative arts organisations including Midlands Arts Centre (MAC), Geese Theatre Company and Birmingham Royal Ballet. Her passion is improving participation and accessibility of the arts for everyone.


When booking your place, please share any questions you’d like to ask. Bring a brew of your choice! We look forward to seeing you there.
