NPC’s briefing paper on how trustees can support their charity’s fundraising.
Best practice in fundraising: A guide for trustees
In many circles, ‘fundraising’ seems to have become a dirty word. Recent scandals have seen the media focus on examples of poor practice and the rights of the public to remain undisturbed. Yet charities must fundraise in order to provide services for the people or causes in need of help. So how can trustees support their charities to raise funds responsibly but with conviction?
On 21 November 2016, NPC and The Clothworkers’ Company held a seminar exploring the role of trustees in charity fundraising. This report outlines the issues discussed and summarises advice from our speakers:
- Ian MacQuillin, Director of fundraising think tank Rogare
- Rachel Bartholomeusz and Liz Jorden, Trustees, Disability Challengers
- Gethyn Williams, Director of Development and Engagement, Contact a Family
