The Fundraising Review can often be least
‘painfully’ conducted in the first instance by your filling in our simple
questionnaire which is aimed at identifying your current
fundraising activity, budget, income versus expenditure, fundraising needs, and
your own concepts of what your organisation provides to the general public (and
sets it apart from other charities in your own particular funding stream i.e. USPs;
unique selling points). Also critical to the Review process is your honesty
about what you have found successful, unsuccessful, inefficient, problematical
or positive in your past fundraising activities.
Organisations often find it difficult to discuss
priorities when faced with a Fundraising Review – especially since so many rely
on volunteer help to ensure they meet their charitable objectives. However, a
severe and critical overview of such priorities is often key to achieving
success – rather than falling back on the old argument that ‘if we had more
people we could spread the load better’.
CFC can help you identify some of your
‘pitfalls' and help you identify priorities and pointers for your future success.
A list of all your past funding sources with dates and amounts awarded will be required.
