Some tips for fundraisers working from home 

These are the steps we recommend to stay healthy, positive and to continue your success.

  1. Get up at the same time as you would as if you were still commuting
  2. Plan your day hour by hour and include breaks
  3. Do not listen to too much news.
  4. Make your calls in the morning while you feel fresh. It’s important to call companies.
  5. When you get through to the right person, don’t start selling them the charity or project. They will be busy and will not appreciate the distraction, therefore, you should arrange a teams/zoom with whoever you are speaking to. That way you can really prepare and so can they
  6. Always follow up with an email once first contact has been made
  7. Have regular calls with the team throughout the day. (Your coffee break time)
  8. When you finish work. Finish work. Do not check your emails all evening
