If you’re part of a large organisation there are a number of ways that you’re able to increase your fundraising participation on an international scale. Many corporations are actively seeking the opportunity to fundraise abroad and there are solutions available to most companies regardless of their size. Raising money can be done, as long as you know where to seek funding and there are a number of different ways to approach this.

International Economies and Large Organisations

Being part of a large organisation who are keen on fundraising means that it’s important to really understand the global areas to target for upcoming fundraising drives. With the continually changing world economy, many countries are now booming and these countries are often the most promising when it comes to fundraising support.

  • South America – Brazil, Peru, Argentina, Chile and Mexico are just some of the South American countries that are currently experiencing a healthy boom economically. This means that there are large organizations there that are looking to get involved in fundraising and finding them can benefit your own fundraising efforts
  • Asian Regions – China, India, Singapore, Hong Kong and Thailand are all doing well financially at the moment and this has opened up a new area for large organisations to make headway in the charity sector

Trust Fundraising Internationally for Large Organisations

There are a number of trusts in place throughout the UK to help large organisations with their international fundraising. Many trusts are globally based and will rely on funding from international companies. As well as international companies, there are a number of extremely wealthy individuals who are getting involved in fundraising on a global scale.

If your organisation is hoping to receive funds for a project or if you’re the ones who are keen to dedicate money to helping others, there are ways to do this through international companies and individuals.

If you’re looking to get involved with a trust or grant, you can hire the help of a professional fundraising company. There are many of these available, but they will cost. Some of the most effective will look at your companies situation, goals and strategies and implement a solution.

  • Abbey Solutions – A company that can ensure your organisation get the correct plans and structure for your international fundraising
  • Professional Fundraising – Great information on how your company can benefit from International Fundraising through both trusts and other means

Large Companies Fundraising for International Charities

Many large companies don’t know how to begin fundraising on an international scale and are desperate to be provided with fundraising ideas. There are a number of possible ways to take part in fundraising, either through donating to an existing organisation or seeking out ways of doing your own fundraising. Whichever path you choose, you should spend a lot of time researching the type of fundraising you want to do and the aims you have for it.

You can think on a small scale and get employees involved with fundraising and then donate that cash to a larger international charity organisation or you can apply for fundraising for your own means. If you choose to try to raise funds locally for an international cause, try getting the media involved. This will help you get plenty of attention and should help your cash contributions.

You can also join forces with other local businesses to get a real sense of one community working for another. The key is to be 100% committed, set yourself achievable goals, stay focused and get as many people as possible supporting your fundraising effort. Remember there are often tax breaks for large organisations when it comes to fundraising also, so you're not only helping yourself,but also others in the process.
