Fundraising Review

Do you need a review or audit of your fundraising?

A fundraising review:

  • Is a tool to inform your developing fundraising strategy
  • Draws on the experiences of other charities
  • Is tailored towards your individual needs
  • Is based on your existing strengths.

A fundraising review is not:

  • A sign of failure
  • An extravagance
  • An ‘instant fix’
  • A stick with which to beat existing staff

And a well-run audit is:

  • Cost effective
  • Objective
  • Inclusive

What might prompt an audit?

  • A change in fundraising staff
  • You need to increase your income
  • You are taking on a new challenge
  • You feel that there are missed opportunities
  • You want to explore one or more potential income streams
  • A belief that existing fundraising is not as cost-effective as it might be.

Who could be involved?

  • Ideally both staff and trustees
  • Your chief executive officer
  • Key fundraising staff
  • Supporters and leaders (patrons; appeals committees).
