Overview of alternative funding

The Guardian has short thoughts from a panel of experts on alternative sources of charity funding in ‘Alternative finance: is it right for your charity?‘. Crowdfunding, social impact bonds and social investment are mentioned.

Elsewhere in the paper, ‘Crowdfunding saved Timbuktu’s manuscripts. What’s next?’ is a longer, very readable piece if less immediately relevant to UK charities, at http://www.theguardian.com/technology/2015/jan/01/crowdfunding-timbuktu-manuscripts-african-culture.
