Funding / Fundraising Guides
The Church of England’s Parish Resources website offers a range of practical Funding and Fundraising Guides to help parishes raise funds for large fundraising appeals (building projects) as well as funding the on-going mission of the church.
Capital Fundraising Campaigns raise large sums of money for building maintenance and/or large projects. Campaigns can last anything from two to twelve years and each Capital Campaign requires clear planning, preparation and good project management.
Each appeal needs to be considered in its unique local context, and parishes are encouraged to contact Sarah Vullo at an early stage of considering a possible project.
