The Business of Charities 2020: Back to the Future?
A slowdown in the economy is considered a huge risk to future income and the ability to meet charitable objectives.
With the economic and political uncertainty that lies ahead, charities are under increasing pressure to deliver services whilst complying with regulations and meeting the expectations of their trustees, donors and service users. Moreover, in this digital era our world is changing faster than ever before. This pace of change means that charities must adapt quickly to meet the needs of their stakeholders. So what's in store for the charity sector in the future?
Clapham & Collinge Solicitors and guest speaker Kerry Holmes from Lucas Fettes Financial Planning are holding a free-to-attend legal briefing on 'The Business of Charities: Back to the Future?' where we will look back over the last 35 years in the VCSE sector, highlighting changes that have occurred and then look into the future, so you're ready for next decade! The briefing will address many of the important legal issues faced by charities and provide an essential toolkit to protect, avoid risk and develop a sustainable future.
Included will be:
- Charities working collaboratively
- Charities merging and sharing resources
- Cyber security toolkit - protecting charities from cyber crime
- Fundraising – raising funds through gifts and charitable legacies
- Picking up the slack after a decade of austerity: can you get funds to work harder in 2020 and beyond?
