Where the need is greatest
Even before the coronavirus pandemic, many charities were struggling to balance increased demands for services and static or decreasing income. But now those factors are even more extreme, and shifting services and fundraising to digital have become an existential rather than strategic imperative.
As we move through the response and recovery phases of the pandemic, charities, particularly the smallest, need to build resilience to cope with the new abnormal. This is exactly what the BRIDGE programme is designed to do, and we’ve already supported hundreds of nonprofits around the world.
'The best part of the BRIDGE programme is being part of an extended family and social media team that comes with it who cannot only advise and support but help you to grow.'
To find out more about how we’re supporting charities to respond, recover and build resilience through the COVID-19 pandemic, get in touch and ask for a sample curriculum.
How BRIDGE helps
BRIDGE equips charities with the competence and confidence to flourish. We know that the most exciting and inspiring stories come from grassroots organisations – and we want to amplify these good stories, especially in the current climate. With crucial support from foundations, participants learn to embrace digital through interactive masterclasses and webinars, dedicated one-on-one support, and digital tools like our e-learning platform.
Plus, during the current COVID-19 crisis, we’ve adapted our curriculum to focus on three phases – Response, Recovery and Resilience – to support grantees when and how they need it most.Get in touch
'The webinars run by Lightful and a number of other resources are all downloadable for reuse which is really helpful. I have been able to watch the webinar in my own time and then also have access to the resources to learn from later'.
We work with some of the leading Foundations and Trusts in the world
