Fundraising for your church’s social action - London
@2nd Floor Meeting Hall Diocesan House, 36 Causton Street Westminster SW1P 4AU
A free 2-hour interactive workshop providing advice and guidance for churches.
If you need to raise money to get going, where do you start? If you need to keep a project running that’s already going but struggling for funds, where can you go?
We will look at how churches can raise money to respond compassionately to the needs they see in their parish and community. Whether that is…
-setting up a debt advice centre -offering provision for the homeless -helping with food poverty -providing a drop in for the lonely and isolated -any other issues you would like to respond to. There will be plenty of time to network and share ideas, as well as expert input from fundraisers and those on the ground with experience of keeping projects running.
