New resource to support your fundraising strategy

25 June 2020/Categories: Grants_and_Funding

To help fundraisers like you in this hugely challenging time, the Institute of Fundraising have been working with THINK Consulting Solutions to put together an important new resource.

From Response to Recovery: Fundraising strategy and Covid-19 takes you through the key strategic questions and issues which face so many charities, providing you with tips, insight, and ideas about how to tackle the tough decisions ahead. Topics covered include strategic planning; brilliant fundraising basics; digital; people; and culture, innovation and behaviours.

This guide is an essential starting point for conversations with trustees, chief executives, and your fundraising teams. While the answers and approaches will be different for each organisation, we hope that having a resource that helps you initiate conversations and guides you through some of the key discussions ahead will be extremely beneficial.

Designed to complement our existing guidance on fundraising and coronavirus, read From Response to Recovery: fundraising strategy and Covid-19 and use it to support your fundraising strategy
