Outside pressures affect charities in much the same way as they do businesses with cash flow being one of the toughest challenges.
Charities can struggle at the best of times but the pandemic has made it extremely tough, with the top 4 pressures being identified as:
- Identifying people in need
- Financial challenges
- Volunteer retention
We have had a number of conversations with the team and charities about the struggles experienced when trying to fund raise during the pandemic and led to us wanting to find ways to alleviate some of these worries and pressures.
Not being able to fund raise in the ways we used to is frustrating because we understand just how important gifted money is to charities and in a lot of cases is the only source of income they have to:
a) Run the charity and
b) Support people in their communities.
With the ever changing rules around where people can come together for events such as fun runs, family fun days and the fact that people rarely use cash anymore means giving spare change at supermarkets and on the street has all but stopped.
This ultimately results in serious financial challenges to keep charities in operation and to do the much needed work that more than often fills the gaps that central governments are unable to fill.
1) Provide a sustainable way for charities to continue to bring money in during good and tough times.
By signposting carers within your community to bridgit.care you can help them and generate income for your charity.
