We know and understand the challenges of fundraising. We’ve been there. When we’re busy delivering lifechanging projects on the ground, fundraising can easily fall off the plate.
Trusts and Foundations allocate billions of pounds each year to charities. With 166,000 that exist in the UK, it’s the larger charities that obtain the majority of the funds. Small organisations simply don’t have the same investment in fundraising. We know lifechanging local initiatives are taking place all over the country, led by passionate and dedicated people, but these too often fail to continue or expand due to lack of funds.
Small organisations are held back by:
1. Limited fundraising strategy.
2. Limited capacity and time to fundraise.
3. Limited knowledge, skills and experience in fundraising.
Funding People was created to help organisations overcome these hurdles, and support them to develop, grow, and continue to deliver incredible projects that make a huge difference in their community.
Our company was founded from lived experience and real issues faced with fundraising from a grassroots organisation. We set about to change that 2 years ago, and have grown into an organisation of our own, helping others navigate the fundraising world.
