Fundraising

Groups need to diversify their fundraising and ensure they have durable and reliable sources of income to take them into the future. By developing a fundraising mix groups can be more sustainable and reduce the risk of having too much funding concentrated in one source. We provide resources, training and guidance on how to develop your fundraising techniques and sources. Find out more on our Fundraising Hub.
