Roma Fundraising is a company developed from the foundation of Roma Publications – one of the UK’s leading independent publishing houses.
Roma Fundraising provide various publications to non-profit organisations free of charge, while also providing an additional stream of revenue where possible.
No, we are not a charity; just an ethical company that shares the profit with our partners.
Our campaign team contacts local businesses within your catchment area and we obtain revenue by charging for advertising space within the publication.
Local businesses which we believe to be in appropriate business sectors.
Yes, during the briefing process we will discuss the suitability of certain business sectors and some can be omitted from the campaign. In addition we are happy for the charity to give us a limited list of individual companies they would rather we did not contact. Lastly, final say on the inclusion of an advertiser remains with the charity and all adverts will be proofed prior to going to print.
We advise who we are and what we are doing. We will always ask for an authority letter from the charity to include in any correspondence. Above all we take a friendly professional approach, as we are acutely aware we are working on behalf of the charity and this only works if this is promoting your cause.
We can provide the design and print of publications without advertising, at a pre-agreed price.
As part of the profit share deal we could produce further publications without including advertising, instead of paying you cash.
No, if we agree to produce a product free of charge then it stays free of charge. We back ourselves to obtain the required support, but in the unlikely event we do not, then it does not affect us producing the product.
Yes, we have worked with a number of charities where they did not think there was enough support, some now for six years!
Yes, we can provide quotes on the mailing of the products, or where the profit share is sufficient, carry out the mailing for you free of charge.
It depends on a number of factors – the circulation of the product, the number of pages available, and the cost of the product. We will happily give you our recommended list price per advert prior to you agreeing any publication.
Yes, our editors are eager to help. They can carry out either telephone or face-to-face interviews for you and give advice. Ask us are we are sure we can help.
Yes, we have professional in-house photographers that can come to your premises or even provide you with a wealth of imagery for your publications and marketing.
Not a problem. Our designers will match any guidelines you have. Where there are a large number of publications to distribute we will make sure that any increase in page numbers from advertisers does not adversely affect the costs of postage.
Yes, we regularly produce one-off publications, such as annual reviews, anniversary brochures and event brochures. If it is not listed in the website please contact us and we will do our best to assist.
To some degree that is up to you. A certain number of copies can be provided free of charge. For larger print runs a pre-agreed charge may be levied.
