Developing a Finance Strategy
Who would find this resource useful?
This toolkit is aimed specifically at people who have not thought through a financial strategy before. Perhaps you have not been involved in running an organisation before. Or perhaps your organisation has managed without a strategy but now you realise that, to survive, you need a strategy. Where once it was enough to have a few loyal donors, now the funding field has become more complex. Donors increasingly expect organisations to look at alternative ways of generating finance. If you are in a situation like this, then this toolkit will be useful for you.

This toolkit will be useful when:

- You want to ensure that your organisation will survive in the long-term
