Fundraising for Youth Work
Fundraising for youth work has become more competitive recently with the impact of local authority cuts, forcing many youth charities to seek funds elsewhere.
As a result, youth charities are having to diversify their fundraising and exploring news avenues of support, including:
- Trust fundraising
- Community fundraising
- Individual giving
- Corporate fundraising
- Major donor fundraising
- National lottery fundraising
- Social Enterprise
We have many years' experience of fundraising for youth work and can offer:
- Fundraising audits or reviews (to identify the best opportunities and know where to invest)
- Fundraising strategy development (to set out how best to exploit the opportunities)
- Social enterprise planning (to explore opportunities to generate new income through selling services)
- Prospect research (e.g. screening of a database to identify potential major donors, or in-depth profiling of individual prospects)
- Development of specific areas of fundraising (e.g. help to establish a trust fundraising or corporate programme)
- Website and new media fundraising development
- Provision of hands-on support via our Fundraising Placements service
Fundraising for youth work has its own challenges with which we are very familiar. However, we know that it is usually possible with some planning and investment to diversify income sources and increase support.
Our past youth work fundraising clients include Clubs for Young People (now Ambition), Crown and Manor Boys Club, Alford House Club and Barnstondale Activities Centre.
