A new report by Charity Futures, ‘To the Core’, explores the ongoing challenges associated with charities’ core costs and outlines the need to be open with donors about how their money is spent
The report points out the importance of administrative support, stating that “Infrastructure is rather more like a skeleton than scaffolding. You need it all the time and, unlike scaffolding, you can’t dispense with it.” It goes on to explore the behavioural science behind funding and suggests that the way we talk about fundraising could be key to changing perspectives on funding core costs.
