Inspiring Online Fundraisers: Free Webinar Slides

  • In June Localgiving ran the #LocalHero campaign which saw 268 people fundraise on behalf of a local charity, raising a total of £80,499.05 in donations, prizes and Gift Aid from over 2,576 donors throughout the month.

    It is clear that online fundraising can be lucrative for small and local charities and it is important for these charities to be proactive about engaging with online fundraising throughout the year. As part of Small Charity Week, I hosted a webinar on ‘Inspiring Online Fundraisers’, which focused on how best to engage with and where to find fundraisers, as well as how to support them in the long-term.
