STUCK ON A FUNDRAISING ISSUE? NEED SOME GUIDANCE IN PUTTING YOUR FUNDRAISING PLAN INTO ACTION? WE HAVE SOME FREE HELP AVAILABLE…
The Chartered Institute of Fundraising Cymru, as a direct response to Covid-19, is offering a free, responsive, issue-based scheme to help Wales-based charities, CICs, CIOs tackle a particular issue that they lack professional fundraising capacity or skill to address.
Having launched the scheme in September we have matched over 60 organisations to professional fundraising coaches and we are delighted to announce that we have received further funding to extend this fundraising help to include smaller organisations who are constituted but do not hold a registration with Companies House or the Charities Commission.
All organisations, once approved, are carefully matched with a professional fundraiser who is an expert in tackling issues relevant to those experienced by your organisation. This could be a trust application, campaign messaging for an appeal, dealing with communications with an existing donor or launching an online appeal. Your coach will offer up to five hours of free support on a particular issue.
We were so pleased to be accepted onto this programme. The application process was straightforward and the help we received as a result has been invaluable. We were matched with a coach who was enthusiastic about working with us, took time to listen, made some great suggestions and provocations, and really helped shaped our future fundraising direction. It has left me feeling more confident about the fundraising road ahead for our organisation.

All support will be conducted remotely in accordance with social distancing protocol via phone, email and digital conferencing.
