Funding from National Lottery boards is an excellent fundraising opportunity for many charities.
Although lottery programmes change from time to time, there is usually a fund available for most organisations to apply for, whether multi-year revenue funding or one-off capital funds.
Trust fundraising in the UK is an increasingly competitive area.
Writing successful funding bids to charitable trusts, the National Lottery or government sources requires both time and experience, yet is one of the most cost effective ways of raising money, with a good ratio of return.
Raising significant sums for capital appeals is a major undertaking
and is a very different proposition from revenue and project
In order to raise significant funds there are some important matters to take into account.
Accurate donor or prospect research is a key component of good fundraising.
Individual donors can support your organisation in many different ways, whether by responding to an appeal, through regular giving, by making a major gift or leaving a legacy to your cause.
This year, over £3.4 billion will be left by donors in their wills to UK charitable causes. Are you making the most of this opportunity?
Corporate fundraising offers rich opportunities for certain charities and not-for-profit organisations, as companies are sometimes able to support your cause in a range of different ways.
The millionaire on your doorstep ~ the millionaire on your database. Do you know who these are? And if so, do you know how to engage with them effectively?
Today some voluntary organisations are earning valuable funds by developing social enterprises and earning income via fees and charges.
If your fundraiser lacks experience in particular fundraising techniques, have you considered mentoring support as a means of developing their skills?
Online fundraising is now a discipline in its own right. For success you need an understanding of fundraising, plus communications, digital commerce, social networking and online behaviour.
At its heart, fundraising is about communicating needs to donors in ways that inspire them to give. So compelling copy writing – whether for print, websites or social media – is central to achieving your fundraising targets.
