Individual project planIntroductionThis paper presents a report of the project planned to raise as many funds as possible for a charity. The project is a sports competition event that will be held at the University in July 2012. Within our society there are many needy people that require the charity of other individuals for them to survive. Taking care of the sick is a good example of a course that is supported by charitable organizations. The money to be raised in the sports competition is meant to be channeled into supporting the activities of a charity organization taking care of the heart.
The purpose and objectives of this report is to present the plan that will be used to organize the sports competition. The charity to be supported is the British heart foundation which is involved in matters related to heart treatment. This charity has recently received overwhelming pressure from those affected by heart diseases and therefore is having financial problems since it has many activities to fund. Cases of heart diseases in people seem to be on the rise and therefore a lot of money is needed to support the education, research and awareness creation about the diseases (British Heart Foundation 2011).
This project is therefore very important since it is expected to raise the money that will see this charity come out of its current financial problems. The report will cover a number of sections among them the background to the British Heart Foundation, the business case which will discuss the objectives of the report, the options considered, Expected Benefits, Key milestones, Costs, Net Benefits and the Potential Risks and Constraints.
It will also feature marketing, work break down structure, Network Diagram and Critical Path Analysis, Gantt chart and finally the conclusion. The information to be included in the report will be collected through a desk top research on the matters involved. Information about the charity; the British Heart Foundation and the preparation for the sports competition will be obtained from secondary sources such as journals, books and the internet (Carmona, Burgess, Badenhorst 2009 pp. 14). BackgroundThe British Heart Foundation (BHF) works as a charity organization based in Britain. It is involved in funding education, research, care and campaigns on awareness about the prevention of heart diseases in people (British Heart Foundation 2011).
The British Heart Foundation was established in 1961 through the efforts of certain medical professionals that were disturbed by the rise in deaths because of cardiovascular disease. They were interested in funding extra research for the diagnosis, causes, treatment and the prevention of circulatory and heart disease. Their interest was to fund more research in to the treatment, diagnosis, causes and prevention of circulatory and heart disease. BHF is a big authority and funder of cardiovascular research, care and education and the organization depends majorly on donations for meeting its aims (British Heart Foundation 2011).
For it to increase its impact and maximize its income BHF works closely with other organizations to control disability and premature death from cardiovascular disease. The British Heart Foundation is focused on 5 cardiovascular health areas. It pioneers research in heart disease causes and better methods of diagnosis, prevention and treatment. BHF provides important information that helps people to lower the risk of heart disease in their lives.
It campaigns by lobbying the government to enact better policies that can reduce the chances of getting circulatory and heart disease (British Heart Foundation 2011).
