You’re in the third sector to make a difference. How can you get more of the money you raise where it’s needed?

According to the fundraising experts from Virgin Money Giving, which was set up to help not-for-profits with just this challenge, even small changes can make a big difference in the amount you can dedicate to your cause.

Here are five things to consider:

1. Find a partner who isn’t out for a profit

Partners like Virgin Money Giving doesn’t take a penny in profit, passes on Gift Aid in full and gets every donation to its rightful owner within a week, helping organisations make their fundraising go further.

2. Make online fundraising easer

Finding handy tools that even the most computer-phobic can use will boost your overall efforts.

3. Develop your skills

Training and support like the kind offered through Virgin Money Giving can help you make the most of your online fundraising.

4. Keep your money safe

Virgin Money’s bank-grade security and sustainable business model will ensure that everything you raise gets where it needs to go.

5. Ask for help when you need it

A dedicated helpdesk means that Virgin Money Giving customers have someone to speak to when they need help or ideas.
