This comprehensive guide takes you through each aspect of charity marketing, linking them directly with fundraising, showing how improving one will almost always lead to more success with the other.

To earn the donations and sponsorship that keep your organisation going, you need to think about the face your organisation presents to the world. That means revisiting the brand you have developed, the marketing messages you put out, your charity’s media presence and the public actions you take.

Who should buy this book?

This short guide will appeal to anyone in fundraising or marketing, but is particularly aimed at senior managers, encouraging them to work more closely together to mount joint campaigns.
