This year will be the seventh year of Small Charity Week, a brainchild of the Foundation for Social Improvement (FSI) which was launched as a way of profiling the amazing work of the UK’s small charity sector.
Despite making up 97% of the charitable sector, when it comes to receiving funding, raising awareness, and engaging with policy makers, small charities are frequently overshadowed.
When it was first launched, Small Charity Week was actually Small Charity Day. But it became clear that there was so much to celebrate, the campaign expanded to six days of themed activities to support and profile small charities and local community groups with an annual turnover up to £1.5 million.
Small Charity Week 2017 (19th-24th June) will provide support that will enable small charities to raise their profile, and gain new knowledge and skills to support them to thrive. Whether it be providing fundraising opportunities, improving knowledge, fundraising skills, or social media know-how;the week has something for everyone.
