The Rogare Council

The Rogare Council consists of up to 30 people who are most committed to Rogare and our objective to rethink fundraising. 

 

Council members have three main roles:

 

1.    Providing organisational leadership to Rogare by supporting the Rogare director and executive with the running of Rogare, which members do by serving on at least one of six standing groups (see below).

 

2.    Provide thought leadership to the Critical Fundraising Network by acting as mentors and facilitators, particularly for project teams.

 

3.    Be ambassadors and advocates for Rogare, our ideas and our way of doing things.

Council standing groups

Funding and fundraising – to advise on strategy and tactics for fundraising for Rogare itself and to consider new funding options, both voluntary and commercial.

Communications, engagement and marketing – to advise on any matters related to these issues and to help devise relevant strategies and plans and ensure our ideas are disseminated through professional practice. 

Membership – to set and keep under review the terms and conditions for Council membership, and to establish and run the processes for joining the Council. 

Metrics and measurement – to set the key performance indicators of success and other metrics that will allow us to assess whether we are achieving our objective to rethink fundraising. 

Events – to plan and organise Rogare’s programme of events.

Governance and oversight – formerly the Rogare board. Its role is to provide financial oversight of Rogare, by monitoring budgets, signing off the annual accounts, and approving the director’s remuneration, for example.
