Over the past 18 months of lockdown and uncertainty, we’ve seen how charities have been a lifeline to those in our communities who so vitally depend on their support – all at a time when charities have been facing their own funding crisis.
Longer lead times with trusts and foundations and the suspension of in-person fundraising events all contributed to this deficit in income, but many organisations rose to the challenge and thought outside the box.
As government guidelines relax and life returns to ‘normal’, we look at incorporating community fundraising back into your strategy and the benefits it can bring to both organisation and its beneficiaries.
This webinar will include:
- the benefits of community fundraising;
- how to get started and the basic principles to increase your success;
- fundraising ideas and what others are doing well locally; and
- a peer-to-peer ideas exchange.
The workshop will be followed by a short Q&A session. To ensure everyone has a chance to have their questions answered we are limiting the spaces on this webinar to only 20 so early booking is recommended.
