Charities like Survivors Together often rely on voluntary support but they sometimes receive grants and funds for certain projects. It’s a tough call for charities as they are often judged for spending money on marketing and not on their cause. But sometimes you have to spend money to make money. Looking like an efficient, well-run organisation helps them find sponsors and raise much-needed funds to support more people.
Survivors Together have told me that the quality of their annual reports have definitely helped them secure grants and funding.
