Top 100 UK Fundraising Charities Spotlight Report

22 March 2017

Pressures in funding environment effect charity growth

The Top 100 UK Fundraising Charities spotlight report provides the opportunity to "assess the damage" of an increasingly difficult funding environment. The report is written by Cathy Pharoah from Centre for Giving and Philanthropy, Cass Business School and identifies that this year's financial results indicate that pressures in the funding environment have effected charity growth and there is little to suggest that this might change in the immediate future. In the medium term, the future challenge for many charities is to maintain their position and if they can manage to develop new fundraising techniques or messages which particularly resonate with the public, there is still potential to grow.
