Building Strategic Corporate Partnerships

Building Strategic Corporate Partnerships – lessons from a small charity

Small charity, Just a Drop, took a strategic approach to their corporate fundraising activities to gain sponsorship, Charity of the Year partnerships, cause-related marketing partnerships and support from CSR departments.

In four years, this has resulted in an increase from 19% to 51% of their total income being secured from corporate sources. They equate their success to perseverance in the field, a clear and strategic approach to corporate fundraising and a clear understanding of the charity’s strengths.

Hear from Brendan, their Head of Fundraising and Communications, on his top tips on how to reap the benefits of a similar approach for your charity, including the use of a mutual benefit approach and effective communication. Brendan will also discuss the lessons they have learnt on their four year journey in transforming the charity’s fundraising success.
