Stay strong - the fundraising community pulls together

Updated: Mar 18

Ok let's get it out there - this week has been a whirlwind. And it's only likely to continue in the coming weeks. The news and social media is anxiety-inducing for even the most resilient of us.


The charity sector is particularly concerned. We still have services to run and people relying on us. How do we keep helping those who need us most when our funding may be at risk and staff possibly unavailable?


Luckily, our sector is amazing. We are a wide spread team of superheroes, not only working to change the world - but making sure we're looking after each other in times of crisis too. Over the last 24hours alone, I've been so inspired by our sector. From message's like Jem's, a small charity CEO, reminding us to be kind to each other, to fellow consultants and freelancers offering their time to help their clients and charities.

Our community is amazing, and as well as also making time available to speak to my clients and small charities for free, I wanted to collate some great resources that have been put out there into one place.


Practical free resources and offers of help


General sector advice


Other collated resources


Blogs



Above all else, please remember to be extra kind, don't spread misinformation or conspiracy, and take time to look after your own mental health and well-being.

We can get through this together. #ProudFundraiser


If you'd like to arrange a call to talk about what your charity CAN be doing at this time, please send me an email on hello@fundraisersarah.com and we'll set up a time to chat. I look forward to hearing from you.

PS. And just in case it's helpful, some things I can quickly turn around for you are:

  • Copy writing an emergency appeal letter

  • Creating a Facebook campaign for an appeal or virtual community fundraising

  • Turning a physical event into a virtual one and getting the comms and marketing turned around quickly

  • Donor care calls to event participants of cancelled events
