Would you like to better engage your community, reach a wider support base and host great events that raise money and awareness for your cause? Join our funding adviser for expert advice on planning and executing an impactful community fundraising programme.
Covid 19 has greatly increased the profile of the voluntary sector in meeting critical local needs amongst the communities that they serve. Whist the crisis may restrict different forms of community fundraising, this awareness presents opportunities for non-profits to encourage increased support from the community.
Financial support from the community should be one of the key parts of a stable, resilient organisation and, when they are properly engaged and mobilised, your local community can be a huge asset to your organisation. A great event, pitched just right and properly promoted and managed can be a really enjoyable way of reaching new audiences and raising funds. When it sits within a wider community fundraising programme, it could be the foundation for relationships with new, highly engaged supporters.
This training is ideal for anyone in a fundraising role who wants to learn how to plan community fundraising activities in a way that maximises their impact. It will help you to develop your community and event fundraising programme, by enabling you to:
- identify potential sources of income from your local communities
- confidently create a community and events fundraising plan
- develop an engaging fundraising pack for supporters
- effectively engage, develop, and steward volunteers and event participants
Your local community can and should be one of your largest support bases. Learn practical steps you can take to make that happen, and make sure it continues for the long-term.
