We've been sending out quite a few free reports recently, so we thought we'd put them all in one convenient place. Here's a preview of what's available:
The Politics of Charities
What do the public think about charities having the right to lobby? And what does it mean to MPs and journalists for charities to 'be political'?
Global Digital Fundraising
Global communication has opened up new opportunities to engage with communities and key audiences. So what does this mean for non-profits in different environments?
We have combed through the comments we received from MPs in this year’s Charity Parliamentary Monitor to get a sense of which campaigning tactics used by charities are the most effective.
From this data, we have compiled nine things for charities to consider in their campaigns in the run-up to a General Election. You can view them all, plus some verbatim quotes from MPs, in this free report.
