Door-to-door fundraising agency HOME Fundraising has become an Associate Member of fundraising think tank Rogare.
Associate Members are suppliers to the fundraising sector who share Rogare’s ‘Critical Fundraising’ ethos. Associate Members will assist Rogare in identifying areas of research and plan the publications, events and other outputs that will bring this research to the attention of the fundraisers.
Dominic Will, HOME Fundraising’s joint managing director, says:
“We are looking beyond specific fundraising channels to what makes good and sustainable organisations with a successful output; in our case this is developing individuals, recruiting donors and generating income.
“The inception of Rogare is an important step in providing a different perspective on the issues in the sector, and we look forward to playing a significant role and contributing to this network through the advisory panel.”
Rogare’s director, Ian MacQuillin, says: “I know the importance HOME Fundraising attaches to the issues of public perception of fundraising and the professional status of fundraisers. As these are two issues that are also of great interest to Rogare, I am delighted to welcome HOME to the ranks of Associate Membership.”
Dominic Will and David Mbaziira, HOME’s head of external communications, will join Rogare’s advisory panel of senior and emerging sector thinkers. Dominic Will also takes up a place on the advisory group to Rogare’s current review of relationship fundraising.
With regular giving specialist Rapidata and creative agency Bluefrog having become the think tank’s first Associate Members in January this year, Rogare is now half way to its full complement of six associates for 2015.
Five other organisations – some from outside the UK – are in discussions regarding the remaining slots.
