New improvements for UK Fundraising later today

New improvements for UK Fundraising later today

UK Fundraising will shortly be introducing some new improvements and services to its website.

UK Fundraising will look slightly different later today as we introduce some improvements to the site, its services and the way we run it.

For those of you confused by the separate registrations for the site, forum and newsletter, we’ll start to integrate those into a single catch-all registration.

We’ll highlight more of the range of our site’s content on the front page, focusing on what is new in the various sections. We’ll make it easier for you to find news and resources relevant to your particular discipline of fundraising e.g. direct marketing, legacy fundraising, trust fundraising, and new media fundraising.

We’ll be enabling our advertisers to share details of their services in some new ways, always with the aim of helping them focus their adverts on relevant visitors to the site and reporting the results. New services include a highlighted job of the week, more detail on supplier listings, and more opportunities for button adverts.

There will also be an improved recruitment section where we’ll be highlighting the services of a range of specialist fundraising recruitment agencies.

We will also introduce a new service covering another community of fundraisers.

We’ve added a new section to our suppliers directory to help fundraisers and charity staff locate venues for their fundraising and other events.

We’ve tried to tidy up some accessibility issues too, and we’ve also invested in a faster server infrastructure for the site.

Several new services won’t be fully live, so for example the UK Fundraising Forum will be available but we won’t be accepting posts for about a week. A sitewide search facility will also not be available at first. So, expect some of the changes to come in over the next few weeks.

Some of these changes are our ideas, but many of them have been suggested by our users, so thank you for your ideas, and we hope you find the results useful. As in previous changes to the site we have tried to make them incremental, rather than presenting and annoying users with a great leap forward. We hope you like the new site and services. We’d welcome any comment on them, positive or negative.

For details of the new advertising opportunities contact Lindsey Hood on 0207 770 6284 or Sarah Lawrence on 0207 770 6288.
