John Grain Associates (JGA) has published a new toolkit on fundraising from trusts and foundations. It is available for download at no charge.
The JGA Fundraising Guide to Trusts and Foundations covers areas such as How Trusts and Foundations are Administered, the Basic Rules of Making Applications, the Minimum Cycle of Contact, and What a Fundable Project Should Look Like. It includes case studies and practical tips.
JGA consultant, Barry Floyd, said: "It’s good old-fashioned relationship fundraising in its purest form, but it’s amazing how many charities miss the obvious cues. In the current economic climate, this sort of fundraising can be a valuable and stable asset for all charities, big and small. JGA has seen some great results by adopting the approaches described in the guide."
JGA publishes other free guides including 'How to Make Your Thank You Letters Better', 'An Introductory Guide to Raiser’s Edge', and 'How to Set Up a Tribute Giving Programme'.
