Who uses Collective Funds?

Prism offers a unique service to individuals and groups who are raising funds for a specific issue area. The Collective Fund model aims to remove the obstacles involved with setting up a standalone charity, instead providing fundraisers with a charitable account underneath Prism’s auspices. If you are thinking of raising over £20,000 a year for your chosen cause, then this service could be for you. A Collective Fund appeals to those who are new to the charity sector, have a new idea, are new to raising funds in the UK, or simply don’t have time to run their charitable projects at the same time as running the back office. It additionally appeals to people or groups where time is of the essence, and waiting for charitable registration might seriously impact their ability to carry out good work.
