London & South East Members' Meeting - London

Thursday, 8 Jun 2017, 15:00 - 18:30


Income Generation

Charities generate income in a number of different ways, whether that is through fundraising, grants, or investments, the opportunities are far-reaching. We will explore alternative funding options that are available such as social investment or trading subsidiaries. We will then look at the fundraiser’s perspective and the role they within a charity. 

We have also revamped the format of our members meetings to make them more discursive and allow members more time to learn from and share experiences with peers. 

Join us at the London members’ meeting and discover ways your charity might diversify its income. 

This meeting is kindly hosted by

Integrating fundraising into your organisation 

Fundraising covers a wide range of activities including individual giving, mass participation events and street canvasing. In smaller organisations, it is often one person who takes on organising all of these activities.
