I found this in a 1983 Hospice newsletter and thought to myself how wonderful it was! Stripping away from all of the ways we fundraise, it really gets down to the base of what we do; understanding needs, rallying support and giving thanks!

We can all get caught up in database/ social media / acquisition discussions but essentially what fundraising comes down to is identifying a need, encouraging support and reporting back to those that made something great happen!

(Don’t get me wrong, there are lots of other important things we need to focus on to be great fundraisers, but we also need to remember to take a step back and really work out what we are trying to do and ask ourselves ‘Is this fundraising?’)
