FUNDRAISING NEWS: Missionary group shifts fundraising away from church

Missionary organisation USPG is to refocus its fundraising efforts and will look to form individual relationships with supporters instead of relying on income through the church.

Maggie Woods, fundraising manager at USPG, which runs Christian projects abroad, said it was vital that the charity grew to reflect the changing environment of episcopal giving.

"We're looking to develop modern methods of fundraising to help us develop our community services,

said Woods. "Many churches now nominate three or four chosen charities instead of supporting a large range of organisations, and we need to start talking directly to church congregations to communicate the work we support all around the world."

Previously the charity had received funding through a general charity fund from the Anglican Church, but is now looking to start raising funds independently through building its profile with congregations.
