Charities operate within an increasingly challenging environment, with competition for public engagement, funding and volunteers intensifying. High-profile scandals have knocked public trust and the recent Covid-19 pandemic has illustrated how important it is for charities to provide support in times of need and fill the gap left by inadequate public sector provision. Across 12 chapters a diverse group of academics and deep-thinking practitioners present contrasting perspectives and the latest thinking on the challenges within the charity sector.

The approach of the book contributes to the growing phenomenon of Theory + Practice in Marketing (TPM) presenting different perspectives and theoretical lenses to stimulate debate and future research.

Charity Marketing provides a bridge between the practice of contemporary nonprofit organisations, charity marketing and recent academic insight into the charity sector. Using exemplar case studies of nonprofit and charity brands, this edited volume will be of direct interest to students, academics, marketing practitioners and researchers studying and working in charities, public and nonprofit management, and marketing.

Fran Hyde is Deputy Dean of Suffolk Business School, University of Suffolk, UK. She was previously a marketing practitioner before moving into marketing lecturing. Her interest in nonprofit marketing began during a presentation to a group of students by the marketing director of a hospice who highlighted the challenges of marketing a hospice. Seeing first-hand the disconnect between how marketing theory can be taught and how this translates into practice, this encounter is what began her examination and interest in nonprofit marketing practice.Sarah-Louise Mitchell is Senior Lecturer in Marketing at Oxford Brookes University, UK. She holds a PhD from Henley Business School and an MBA from London Business School. Her primary area of research focuses on providing academic insight for the nonprofit sector, particularly understanding the role of brand for nonprofit organisations through mapping stakeholder decision-making behaviour, decoding nonprofit brand storytelling and exploring charity brand touchpoints. Previously, she worked extensively for consumer goods, food retail and nonprofit organisations, in senior roles including strategic marketing, category insight and new product development.
