Friday Fundraising Club

Actions and Detail Panel


Friday Fundraising Club is a weekly gathering of community champions collaborating to grow their fundraising knowledge and experience.

About this event

With the increased need for local services following a decade of austerity and worsened by wave after wave of the Covid 19 pandemic, local people have responded by pooling their knowledge and talent to help each other access desperately needed funding.

To support these efforts Lewisham Local hosts a weekly virtual peer development group where existing and aspiring community champions come to learn about available funding opportunities and or share their skills and experience in a wide range of fundraising approaches suited to the work they do.

Since its launch in April 2021 Lewisham Local has hosted 46 Fundraising Club meetings which have helped scores of local people build their confidence, improve their fundraising skills and develop working partnerships in a fun and friendly setting. Our ethos at Friday Fundraising Club is and continues to be "each one, help one".

At fundraising Club meetings we exchange information and experiences in generating income from sources including;

  1. Trusts and Foundations.
  2. Individual Donors.
  3. Corporate Donors.
  4. Earned Income Generation.

During our "Funding MOT" sessions, members can also take the opportunity to crowdsource solutions to their development problems and get relatable and real-world ideas and solutions to their organisational problems.

We welcome community champions of all skill levels to join in this innovative community development initiative.
