Fundraising Approaches for Small Charities


In this 90-minute webinar we will cover the basics of building strong foundations to prepare your small charity for efficient and effective fundraising.

You will learn how to assess your charity’s fundraising landscape, the importance of having a diverse mix of income streams, what kinds of fundraising there are and which are the best fit for you and your small charity.

We will consider the practicalities of how to fit fundraising alongside your other responsibilities and the importance of getting support from Trustees, volunteers and the wider sector.

This course will be run online using Zoom.

What will I learn?

You will leave the training with some clear and practical next steps to make progress with fundraising at your small charity.

You will understand the importance of strong foundations – systems, processes and procedures – and know about the different kinds of fundraising and which ones are most suitable for you and your small charity.

You will know where to go next for free or low cost support with fundraising and will feel more confident in your understanding of fundraising in a small charity context.
