Finding New Supporters

Finding new people to replace Committee/Board members or Volunteers can sometimes be fraught with difficulty.  We all lead busy lives, and the time when we are able to give our time freely may not correspond to the time your favoured Charity needs your input!

The times when we have been most in need of the services of a Charity, such as a Charity focused around healthcare for example is the time when we are most open to doing some volunteering in the future, but this isn't always the best time to ask.

It's a dilema!

If this is you - and you are in need of a fresh supply of Volunteers or Committee Members look at it in two ways.  First, it's a marketing issue, second it's a recruitment issue. I'll explain more here.

Traditional marketing and Charities may seem a strange blend, as I have mentioned in a previous post, many people who run Charities feel that marketing is best left to the private sector - if that's your belief I expect you are having some difficulties right now recruiting anyone to your committee or board...am I right?

In the past, a marketing post would have talked about the 4 P's...

Product (what is it you are really 'selling' or offering and what are the benefits?)

Place (where is the 'product' or service available and where can you get it?)

Promotion (How will people hear about it?)

Price (What does it cost?)
