This episode features a discussion from Third Sector's Fundraising Conference on how charities can diversify their income in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.
The session, which took place on Thursday 27 May, was chaired by features and analysis writer Rebecca Cooney.
They discussed how charities can create real, lasting and positive change in their fundraising practices in response to the covid crisis, how the catastrophic loss of income during the crisis has been managed, and whether collaboration across the sector could help organisations connect with new and existing audiences using lessons learned over the past year.
Rebecca and Third Sector editor Emily Burt also chat about The Telegraph newspaper's recent coverage of executive pay in the charity sector and how it compares to Third Sector's own Charity Pay Study 2021, which featured on a recent episode of the podcast.
This week's coronavirus care package of charity good news stories includes:
- An engagement ring lost in Lake Windermere but found by a local litterpicking community free-diving group
- The success of the fundraising campaign to repair Southsea model village after it was damaged by vandals
- And the news that the RSPCA has reported an 85 per cent increase in volunteers in 12 months
