The Role of the Fundraising Committee

The Fundraising committee plays a key role in the effective governance of the charity ensuring there is a realistic and ambitious strategy in place to secure the financial resources necessary to achieve our mission.

The Fundraising committee reviews matters such as the annual fundraising plan on behalf of the Boad of Trustees and makes assurances to them regarding the underlying assumptions and risks within the plan.
