Focus groups on support for fundraising

Published : 10/03/23 | Categories: Funding | Information & support |

Join WCVA at upcoming focus groups for an opportunity to help shape the way fundraising in Wales is supported and developed.

WCVA has been developing a theory of change to improve the coordination and implementation of support for fundraising in Wales, in partnership with other bodies such as the Chartered Institute of Fundraising, National Lottery Community Fund, Community Foundation Wales, Welsh Government and a number of prolific fundraising consultancies.

We would now like to talk directly to fundraisers. To date, the work has been directly informed by research and data collected over a number of years. We now want to make sure that the areas of work our research has directed us to are the right ones to achieve our vision:

The public benefit delivered to communities across Wales is maximised by voluntary organisations being appropriately supported to fundraise responsibly.


We are running two focus groups with two different core topics – you can attend one or both sessions. Both sessions will explore ‘Growing the pot’ – how can we promote giving in Wales, and create more income generation opportunities? So please, come along, help us make sure we’re on the right track, and share your needs and wants about effective support for fundraising in Wales.


On Monday 20 March we will be discussing ‘Skills and learning’. What skills and learning needs do people doing fundraising in Wales want to grow? How would you best like to undertake this learning? What can we do to encourage more people to undertake fundraising as a career?

On Wednesday 22 March, we will be talking about the ‘Governance’ of fundraising. Is risk aversion in your organisation holding back your fundraising? Are you an organisation that fundraises, or a fundraising organisation?
