Advice on fundraising

Raising funds for charity work is fundamental to the continued well being of many charities.

Fundraising can take several guises: -

  • Obtaining grants and donations by direct approaches to donors
  • Appealing to the general public
  • Contractual arrangements with public sector bodies to provide services
  • Investing surplus funds to generate income
  • Charitable trading
  • None charitable trading
  • Sponsorship
  • Negotiating for goods and services to be supplied in kind

We do not manage or operate fundraising appeals. That is the job of a professional fundraiser.

However, Peter Brown & Co can advise on how to

  • Develop strategies and tactics that are most appropriate to a charity ;
  • select a professional fundraiser;
  • arrange trading activities in the most tax effective way;
  • tender to public bodies and what they might be looking for in tender documents;
  • construct grant applications, business plans and financial documents in support of a grant application;
  • design systems for monitoring performance against projection to meet the requirements of donors;
  • develop an effective investment policy;
  • present your annual report and accounts in a way that appeals to potential funders;
  • manage and control cash based appeals and collections;
  • obtain sponsorship

See also our resources section on this website, which gives details on fundraising.
