How to Get Financial Support as a Community Group

Sep 5, 2008
* Do you need funds?

* Do you need a quality hosted web site with easy to use content management?

* Would you like it for free?

Look no further or should it be listen, as Phoenix Community Radio Station www.phoenixfm.co.uk offers fantastic free services that any group can simply access.

Howard Priestley a driving force behind Phoenixfm 96.7 said "As a not for profit organisation we take seriously the support of the community groups of Calderdale. We are continually asked can we find someone to interview who can help our local groups generate funds. We have spent many hours sourcing interviews with high ranking interesting individuals but as this is Yorkshire our listeners response was simple and forceful - Not stuffed shirts and fancy words but solutions please."

The Free Service:

We approached one of our local rotary Clubs in Sowerby Bridge who we know well to see if they had any ideas. One of their members soon put us on the track of an effective solution using Yahoo.com that would give all groups a fundraising service and web site for free. We were extremely suspicious but soon found out that a watered down version of this service has been used for years by charities but this has now been made much, much more effective. The new service genuinely allows small and large groups to generate ongoing monthly unrestricted income.

So rather than just talk about it on the station we thought we would offer the service to any groups anywhere on our site. So now anyone anywhere can access it from the Phoenix website.

What you get:

Phoenix FM get more traffic, plus hopefully some new on-line listeners and you get an effective free fundraising service from Yahoo with Free Website and Free hosting.

What others Say:

Here are some comments from users of this fantastic free service.

"We are now taking advantage of the new offering, which once again looks like being a real winner for us and our supporters" John Savage - Executive Director, Nightingale House Hospice.

"When people approach me for help with their fundraising they often want to be more creative and less grant reliant. Ultimately they want unrestricted income. I tell them about this exciting new opportunity. It's easy to set up; there are no lengthy forms to fill in, difficult questions to answer or long waiting times. You really can make every day a fundraising day....and once your supporters know about it they will be keen to raise money for you simply by doing what they do already... search on the internet." Lee Peacock Consulting - Fundraising Training and Development

"With very little effort it provides you with a new way to encourage existing and new supporters to generate income through simply changing their internet habits. We are also not just talking about generating pennies, but serious income as we are already benefiting from hundreds of pounds". Gareth Morgan - Everyday Champions Centre

"Being paid for using a service we were already using sounds too good to be true - but it isn't" Mike Lawton - Lymm High School.
