Welcome to the fundraising hub

A practical hub to help your church grow its fundraising.

We all know that fundraising can be a challenge, often falling to busy volunteers and clergy with other priorities. These fundraising resources have been developed to provide your church with clear guidance and steps to take to make the fundraising journey easier and more successful.

No two fundraising campaigns are the same and fundraising differs from church to church. As a result, we have designed the principles and tools on this hub so that they can be applied across a variety of fundraising types.

This hub is organised into four steps. Each step contains information, guidance and practical tools to support fundraising by your church.
