Critical Fundraising reports

Exploring issues in fundraising in depth.

Critical Fundraising Reports are explorations of the issues and trends relating to particular areas of fundraising, providing a snapshot or barometer of current important and critical issues in those fields.

Rogare produces three types of CFR reports, for:

  • Types of fundraising, e.g. F2F, major gifts

  • Issues in fundraising, e.g. ethics, regulation

  • National reports.


The reports aim to:

  • Identify the key current and emergent critical issues and challenges

  • Identify the knowledge gaps that exist – these could be lack of theoretical knowledge (such as a paucity of ethical theory) or a lack of practical knowledge (such as not enough research on, say, gender differences in giving)

  • Outline any suggested, preferred or recommended courses of action – including recommendations for future research.


We have published three national reports:
