Charities & voluntary groups: using donated resources as well as raising money

Another excellent report from nfpSynergy on generating donated resources for your cause all well as the usual cash and time from volunteers. Resource raising can be effective for an organisation and the report also gives case studies as well the three top benefits and barriers.

It’s an understandably long report (95 pages) given the complexity of the issues; worth quoting are four points from the section on “The Relevance of Resource Raising”

New resourcefulness is needed due to the decline in statutory funding

The decline in high value donors and the demand for more partnerships and asset use

Government encouragement for more innovative social action

The need to measure non-financial outcomes and impact

This is the link to the full report:
