Fundraising strategy

A fundraising strategy is an important part of any organisation’s business plan regardless of size or purpose.

Developing a fundraising strategy will enable your organisation to better plan for the future by giving you some indication of the resources you will generate to carry out your work.

A well written fundraising strategy will:

  • Help you assess whether your objectives are realistic and achievable.
  • Allow you to take a fully rounded view of income generation. You should consider different ways of generating income, over reliance on a single source could leave your organisation vulnerable.
  • Enable you to better focus your fundraising efforts.
  • Ensure that fundraising is built in to your organisations overall work plan.
  • Identify who is responsible for raising money and identify timescales. 

There is a lot of advice available on the web to help you get started with your fundraising strategy. On this page we give you a few pointers, however if you can't find what you are looking for please get in touch.
