Here’s a real-life post that appeared in an online fundraising forum. Do you see any ‘red flags’?
“The real costs of a grant and trust fundraiser”
I run a small charity called ______ in which we have just completed our business plan.
We have concluded that:
We need to raise the funds to employ a fundraiser.
We need to know how much we need to raise.
We have talked to other similar organisations, who agree that we need a trust fundraiser as opposed to a corporate or event fundraiser.
I would be interested to hear your thoughts on this.
What I could use your help with is understanding the real costs. We think we are looking at a salary of £24,000-£27,000, but what are the other associated costs? (national insurance, pension, office costs, etc)?
Any help would be truly appreciated.
I’d love to know what you think.
