Summer 2017 will mark the seventh year celebrating Small Charity Week (19th-24th June), 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 maker’s, small charities are frequently overshadowed.
When it was first launched, Small Charity Week was actually Small Charity Day. However, it soon became clear that there was a lot to celebrate, and so 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 provides the necessary support to enable small charities to raise their profile, and gain new knowledge and skills to allow them to thrive. Whether it be providing fundraising opportunities, improving knowledge, fundraising skills, or social media know-how; the week has something for everyone.
