On the 16th of July we hosted our first 'Good Futures' Event, a series focussing on new things and ways of working that we hope will help benefit and change the sector. (You can find the key takeaways in PDF Below)
We kicked off the series with this key question;
"Given how difficult fundraising has become, how much longer can charities afford to give away their assets and knowledge for free?"
We think it’s time for charities to generate money while delivering their missions and diversify their sources of income.
Pioneers are already doing this and we heard from our expert panel who shared their experience overcoming some of the key challenges.
With Thanks to our panel:
• Charlotte Guiver, Director of Income Generation at Versus Arthritis, on sharing her experience of developing a start-up to help people with arthritis live better lives
• Johnty Gray, Mass Engagement Director at WaterAid, on sharing his experience of investing in social start-ups to deliver new sources of income
• Sanjay Lobo, Founder & Chief of OnHand, on sharing what it’s like to be a start-up working with charities
• Andrew Bathgate, Co-Founder and Partner at Good Innovation, on sharing the lessons he’s learnt from supporting charities to identify and exploit their assets
Have you ever considered how much income is locked up in your charity’s assets, capabilities and knowledge?
We’d love to help you find out, it all starts here.
