FSI Fundraising Day

*NEW* Quarterly Big Advice Day

We’ve decided Big Advice Day is too good to have just once a year!


We’ll be hosting our next Quarterly Big Advice Day (QBAD for short) on Friday 31st March 2023. It’s a chance for you to speak to advisor/s about pretty much anything - and it's free! You'll be able to arrange a time with your advisor for each session (to be held either online or over the phone).


The only criteria to access free one-to-one advice is you need to be a member of the FSI with an annual income under £1 million. 

Interested in donating your sector expertise? Sign up to be an advisor below - you can volunteer as little as an hour of your time, so if this is something you'd like to participate in we'd love to hear from you! It's a great opportunity to share your knowledge with small purpose-driven organisations that really value your insight.

Small Charity Helpdesk

The Small Charities Coalition (SCC) sadly announced that they closed on 31st March 2022. The FSI (the Foundation for Social Improvement) and NCVO (National Council for Voluntary Organisations) have come together to provide a home for the SCC Helpdesk and other key services. Read more about the transfer and what it means.  

The transfer took place on 11th April, and Amy Walton has moved over from SCC to NCVO to continue to answer your queries. This means you will still be able to access vital help and support for your charity - contact the team at NCVO via, or call 0207 520 2552.

If you need support setting up a charity, you can get in touch with NCVO - plus check out the online Charity Setup Tool.

We know that many small charities are being affected by the cost of living crisis. For more support and guidance, go to NCVO’s cost of living page.
