Tips for trust fundraisers from MIDAS

Fundraising consultancy MIDAS has added a new guide for trust fundraisers to UK Fundraising’s resources section, where fundraisers can buy downloadable reports from experienced fundraisers and consultants. MIDAS’ has produced “Guidance Notes for the Trusts Fundraiser or a Trusts ‘department’ for a small charity”.

The four-page ./guidance has been produced by Ian Kerr of MIDAS, who has worked for over 25 years within the UK voluntary sector.

It is aimed at charities that have just one trusts fundraiser, whether full- or part-time.

The document, written largely in a practical, bullet-point style, can be purchased for £5 + VAT and covers:

* Background
* Key relationships
* Reasonable expectations of income
* Key resources
* Guidelines for good trust fundraising

This is the latest addition to UK Fundraising’s resource section where fundraisers can buy reports, tip-sheets, and other advice documents designed to answer some of the more common questions asked by fundraisers.

MIDAS also run regular training courses on trust fundraising and other areas such as major gifts. Ian Kerr’s next course, “Advanced Trusts Appeal Skills“, is on 14 November.
