Small Charity Week kicks off next week

The UK’s first Small Charity Week gets underway next week, created by the The Foundation for Social Improvement (FSI).

Running from 14 to 18 June 2010, it aims to “bring together the UK’s vibrant small charity sector to share ideas, stories and knowledge, and celebrate the value of small charities in our communities.”

Each day has a particular theme – campaigns, policy, fundraising, car draw day, and celebration day. The ‘car draw day’ refers to the FSI’s very useful initiative in securing a new Mini car as a raffle prize that is open to any UK small charity. For every £2 ticket you sell, whether online or in paper format, your charity receives £1.90. The Great Big Small Charity Car Draw is an easy way to raise funds with a raffle prize that would be beyond the reach of most small charities. Last year the FSI’s first Small Charity Car Draw raised over £72,000 for charities across the UK.

There are plenty of ways to get involved in Small Charity Week. FSI Founder and Chairman Emma Harrison explains how:

Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur. Publisher of UK Fundraising, the world's first web resource for professional fundraisers, since 1994. Trainer and consultant in digital fundraising. Founder of Fundraising Camp.
