Charity Fundraising

Fundraising requires a high expenditure of limited resources – time, money and energy. You will be identifying all your most useful friends, calling in all the goodwill that already exists for your cause and looking to generate more.

This will require an inspiring ‘purpose’ and effective organisation. It will take everything you can give it and it must succeed.  To succeed in the current competitive environment you want to get it right and ensure that your charity will achieve its goals.

Key questions to ask:

• Is your current fundraising potential maximised?
• How can you ensure that your aims are realistic?
• Is your cause truly convincing and inspiring?
• Have you identified all the potential sources of funds?
• How best can you approach potential funders?
• Are your resources sufficient?
• Do you need ongoing consultant support?
