Ethical fundraising - holding your values close

Ethical fundraising - holding your values close

Over the last few years, ethical fundraising has become a much debated area both within the sector, and more broadly in the media. Placing your organisation’s values at the centre of your fundraising strategy is key to securing long-term authentic funding for your work. Right now, it is more important than ever to ensure you feel confident in the framework in which you seek funding.


In this short, two hour course, Cause4’s founder and CEO Michelle Wright will work through key questions to consider as part of developing your ethical fundraising policy, as well as look at examples of how organisations have got back on track, following an ethical dilemma.


This is a one-off course taking place via Zoom on the 15th October from 10-12. This course is aimed at anyone who is interested in bringing back a focus on ethical fundraising to their organisation.
