Fundraising for the development and ongoing management of your community asset will be a key part of your early planning. If you haven’t done it before it can seem daunting. This guide aims to help you to establish a funding package which encourages the inclusion and involvement of your community and develops a sense of local ownership.
Please be aware that since this guide was produced fundraising regulation has been subject to considerable change and fundraisers and boards/committees must keep themselves up to date with regulatory requirements in all areas of fundraising. A big change is to require charities to assess and make judgements on the mental capacity and potential vulnerability of donors. Please refer to the Fundraising Regulator website for more information.
