Major survey planned on effects of global recession on charity fundraising

Research by the Management Centre will attempt to predict fundraising trends in the next decade

A research programme investigating global fundraising trends and the effects of the recession on charities' income has been launched by consultancy firm the Management Centre.

The project, which will take place over the next three months, is in two parts. The first part will survey more than 100 international fundraisers and gather their opinions on areas including which causes will be worst affected, and how fundraisers should plan to deal with the effects.

The second part will put together groups of up to 20 fundraising experts in the UK, South Africa, Switzerland, Mexico, India, Argentina and the US to build a picture of the global fundraising landscape in the next five to 10 years.

The results of the research will be revealed at the Global Fundraising Futures seminar in London in September.  

Bernard Ross, director of the Management Centre, said: "This programme aims to help direct fundraisers where to invest their time and energy in order to maximise efficiency and ultimately build and diversify their income sources."
