Club Guide- Finance and Fundraising

The England Athletics Club Finance and Fundraising Guide contains useful hints, tips and resources for clubs to adopt in order to help them manage, modernise and improve their day-to-day financial processes and efficiencies. England Athletics recognises the challenges for clubs to find a balance between keeping their fees for members at a realistic yet competitive rate, whilst at the same time generating enough revenue to cover operational costs and building reserves for longer term investment and development.

1. Getting started
2. Managing your club finance
3. Membership
4. Sponsorship
