    Story

    What is community fundraising?

    Community fundraising is about mobilising communities

    to support your cause. It is what many people think of

    when they think of the term ‘fundraising’ and can

    comprise events, bake sales, raffles, table sales, and

    much more! The basis of community fundraising is that a

    large audience gives small donations, and a key feature

    of community fundraising is that it is largely unpaid and

    carried out often by volunteers in the local community.

    For all the popularity of community fundraising it is also one of the least cost-effective

    means of generating income for your cause. This is because the donor often gets

    something in return. For instance, for a charity raffle the organisation might have the

    outgoing cost of paying for the prizes; or the cost of booking bands and food for a

    fundraising ball. Only 1% of all charity income comes from community fundraising. So what

    other benefits are there?

    Benefits of community fundraising:

    Your group may have a certain amount of money that it wants to raise from community

    fundraising, but as mentioned above, this form of fundraising is not always cost effective, so

    what other benefits can it have for your organisation?

     It is an opportunity to raise awareness of your group in the local community

     It can help you to find new individual donors and volunteers

     It can help your group to build up credibility within your community

     It can be used to give recognition to donors and volunteers

     It can educate the public about your cause and your work

     It can provide unrestricted income for your organisation.
