Charity Fundraising

We all know that Charity Fundraising is a big issue even for smaller community based organisations in Cambridgeshire.

Last year our State of the Sector Survey informed us that more organisations are looking towards individual or corporate donors to supplement their grants and contract work.

However, Fundraising is one of the largest regulated areas within the voluntary sector and many larger charities have fallen foul of regulation and law in recent months.

So if you are fundraising as an organisation make sure you seek advice on any aspect of fundraising you are unclear of – our fact-sheet might help so click here:

Failing that, book a 1-1 review session with one of our Development Workers: Simply contact in the first instance.

In addition, why not book a FREE space at our next two training sessions on Crowdfunding or events fundraising:

The Equality and Diversity Forum is heading to Cambridge to introduce its Equality and Human Rights Toolkit.

This new resource aims to help organisations ( larger charities as well as smaller community groups)  to consider equality and diversity issues in all aspects of their work.

Date:               11 February and 4 March 2019.

Location:       Cambridge CVS, 16-18 Arbury Court, Cambridge CB4 2JQ

The Toolkit follows a step by step approach in looking at:

  • Providing services.
  • Working with volunteers.
  • Campaigning and advocacy.
  • Employing people.
  • Fundraising.

The workshops will help groups to understand the legislation underpinning equality and human rights issues as well as exploring the practical aspects of using the toolkit in everyday work.

There will also be opportunities to exchange experiences and network with other participants.

Read the case studies from some of the groups (large and small)  that have benefited from using this approach in developing their work.
