    - Highlight needs

    - Help people understand work

    - Highlight your track record


Fundraising from the public

Fundraising from the Public

You need to communicate a simple persuasive fundraising idea:

Example: RNIB (UK)

Everyday 100 people start to lose their sight. We need your support to help rebuildlives devastated by sight loss.

= (NEED) (SOLUTION) (NOW)


Board support

Board Support

  • Realities Versus Aspirations

  • Governance and Strategic Direction

  • Relationship between Chair and Manager


Staff motivation

Staff Motivation

  • “Psychological Contract” between organisation and employees

  • Communicate clearly – minimise “blocker” impact

  • Re-structure work:

    - Equity Theory of Motivation

    - Goal-setting Theory


Full cost recovery

Full Cost Recovery

  • Direct Costs and Overhead Costs

  • Allocate costs to services and projects appropriately

  • Analyse your cost base: major outputs, central functions, office costs, governance costs


Zero base budgeting zbb

Zero-base Budgeting (ZBB)

  • Budgeting method in which all expenditures must be justified each year, not just amounts in excess of the previous year

  • Requires each activity to be justified on the basis of a cost-benefit analysis

  • Ranks activities to allocate resources
