  • 7. Ideal/ RAG 07/08 Methods of Fundraising
    • Grants from Charitable Trusts or Foundations
        • Ideal Projects – these projects all work with and directly benefit members of the community. This is a great position to be in when applying to trusts or foundations as many support those sorts of projects
        • Examples include the National Lottery, Local Council or Charitable Trusts
        • RAG – this may be more difficult however there may be trusts or foundations that support students and charitable work.
    • Corporate Sponsorship
    • Event Fundraising
  • 8. Ideal/ RAG 07/08 Methods of Fundraising
    • Grants from Charitable Trusts or Foundations
    • Corporate Sponsorship
      • Sponsorship from a local business or company – offer something such as publicity in return for cash.
      • Donations from companies – e.g. art materials or decorations for the project
      • What will they get out of it? Offering something in return to the company often works wonders, don’t forget that there are 22,000 students at UAL - that is a lot of publicity for one company with little effort on their part!
    • Event Fundraising
  • 9. Ideal/ RAG 07/08 Methods of Fundraising

  • 24. Ideal/ RAG 07/08 Budgeting
    • Be prepared to keep a tight hold on your budgets! Losing control means spending more money than you may have
    • Remember to cost even the small things such as pens and paper, don’t rely on anyone else to remember these things – have it in the plan!
    • Keeping costs down
      • Economise – shop around and make sure you have the best price before you buy
      • Blag! Ask companies to donate things or give you a discount
      • As a final resort use the cash that you have fundraised
