Support: Fundraising

Use our range of 'how to' guides in the fundraising toolkit to be more effective in your fundraising campaigns. Find out about training seminars and workshops taking place near you, or contact a member of the fundraising team to discuss your fundraising needs.

All churches rely on fundraising to resource their mission and are often seeking ways to increase their income. These guides are for parishes and their clergy who want to better engage their congregations and communities or apply to trusts and foundations for support.
