Fundraising is vital in ensuring that your County is able to offer girls great opportunities and adventures. Many areas really struggle to ensure that family income isn’t a barrier to participation in the guiding adventure and Commissioners play an important role in supporting local volunteers to raise money to make this a reality. In turn they are supported by Girlguiding’s Fundraising and Marketing Team, which helps all volunteers to maximise fundraising opportunities locally. The team also looks to increase and diversify income to the charity as a whole. Girlguiding is an incredible charity with volunteers making a real difference to the lives of girls and women across the UK – don’t be afraid to talk about this to funders and the wider public. Our volunteers are our biggest advocates.
Fundraising support, including ‘how to’ guides and useful templates and links, is available in the website. Alternatively you can email or call 020 7592 1821.
Additionally, the Fundraising and Marketing Team work with Country and Region offices to deliver fundraising training locally. Speak to your Country or Region office about opportunities to learn fundraising skills as part of their programme of volunteer learning opportunities.
