Develop a fundraising strategy

It’s tricky to identify success without a plan. Fundraising strategies can help you pinpoint your objectives and chart your success along the way.

Your strategy can be your blueprint for success:

• Mapping out benchmarks to identify success, including ROI and growth
• Working to future proof your organisation or project
• Demonstrating a targeted approach to your fundraising
• Ensuring longevity and sustainability
• Sharing objectives with your team
• A ‘tool’ to make the most of your resources
• Demonstrating your sustainable planning to funders

“Fundraising Central has been a great help to Leicester Hospitals Charity. We needed to recruit new staff but didn’t have anywhere to put them. Fundraising Central provided an interim solution for us, helping us research and bid for funds from grant-making trusts to support some key projects we had. Their input helped us maintain momentum whilst we found new premises for the Charity, as well as securing additional funds for us. After recruitment they then helped brief the new members of the team, and were very generous with their time and expertise at all times. Tim Diggle, Head of Fundraising – Leicester Hospitals Charity
