How did I ever get into this, I often ask myself! Back in March 2012, I was asked to help raise funds at a local ‘Open House’ in Hampshire for Naomi House Hospice.
It’s one thing creating the world’s largest bra, it’s quite another working out what to do with it afterwards.
According to the Charity Retail Association, nine out of ten charities that sell online use eBay, with the eBay for Charity UK service.
Charity shop volunteers and staff never quite know what they are going to find in the next bag of donated items. Some donated items are very odd indeed.
Social franchising is a buzz phrase at the moment, although it has nothing to do with social media. What is it and why might it be important for charities?
A few months ago I mused (and shared my musings on Twitter of course) about combining LEGO® with fundraising. I've now found a good example of this combination, courtesy of GlobalGiving.
It was highlighted to me recently just how many charities are now acting like PLC companies and I was in two minds whether this was a good or bad thing.
The articles I write for UK Fundraising are mainly about charity consumerism – how charities harness the power of consumers to diversify their revenue stream.
In my last blog post, I spoke about the need to diversify fundraising income by asking supporters to switch their consumer spend from their existing supplier to you.
There’s currently a big problem for charities throughout the country.
