I work for a small charity in Bolton that helps young homeless people and I am really trying to push community fundraising. I have a lot of campaigns and fundraising ideas for the community to get involved with. I really want to get involved with schools and groups like guides/scouts so that we can build strong relationships and most of all so they can become aware of the services we offer, in case anyone needs our services.
I have sent several emails to at least 30 schools and have had absolutely nothing back. I've tried different techniques but still nothing. Does anyone have any tips for engaging the community?
We aren't that well known but as soon as we start talking to people about the charity they are always extremely engaged and really want to support the cause. So I have no concern that it's the charity it's just how to reach the public.
