20 Fundraising steps - Near Neighbours Toolkit
Faith organisations, be they places of worship or faith based charities, aiming to meet the needs of communities will often need to seek funding from sources other than from their immediate membership. To stay true to their faith teachings and meet good standards as set out in law, carefully planned steps will be required to help reach the funding required. The average faith leader may have some knowledge of fundraising but will not be an expert or have enough time to commit to the task. Often others in a faith group with little experience are asked to take on what can be a very demanding task.
The good news is that successful fundraising isn’t just reserved for highly paid experts; in fact anyone can begin to learn about fundraising using this simple toolkit. It will help you plan your fundraising strategy in 20 progressive steps by revealing ‘tricks of the trade’. Every project will have its own unique requirements, but this toolkit is based on factors common to all and compiled from the practice of many successful faith based fundraisers.
20 Fundraising Steps is one of a series of guides available for download from Near Neighbours.
