Asking for money is never easy, but it is a necessity. And yes it may be hard but it can (maybe even should?!) be fun. Here at CEF, whatever our role in the organisation is, fundraising or even just thinking like a fundraiser is part of our job. Hopefully some of the tips here can help demystify and amplify your fundraising efforts.

Before you jump in we recommend you have a think about what you want to achieve and what capacity you have to implement your fundraising plan. Here is an overview of a workshop about fundraising.

Say Thank you

When you have plucked up the courage to ask, and in turn you are gifted the donation, service or product, be sure to show your appreciation with a CEF branded card. Download the cards here and find printing tips here.
