Institute of Fundraising UK events

Are you a fundraiser and based in the UK? Then you might be interested in the upcoming events organised by the institute of fundraising UK. The Institute of Fundraising is the professional body for UK fundraising. They support fundraisers, through leadership, representation, setting standards, and training, and champion fundraising as a career choice. I’ve attended their events and wanted to draw your attention to the some coming up in November and December .

1. Working with Volunteers for Community Fundraising Success
Re-energising grassroots fundraising

Join the Institute of Fundraising at the only conference that specifically considers the relationship between fundraising and volunteering, to be held on 20th November in London.
Volunteer-led fundraising activity is the most frequent way in which the majority of the public engage with and encounter fundraising practice, for example, through attending events, coffee mornings or meeting house to house collectors. Crossing the boundaries between the volunteering and fundraising worlds, this conference will explore how community fundraisers can work with volunteers to strengthen their fundraising overall. It will also explore other key community fundraising issues such as recognising long term value, best practice and developing new ideas.

This conference offers an opportunity to learn from the experts, hear from other organisations in the sector and gain understanding to help you re-energise your approach to community fundraising.

Conference topics include:

  • Debate and discussion - recognising the value of community fundraising
  • Administering regional fundraising networks
  • Understanding volunteers and volunteering trends
  • The Commission on the Future of Volunteering’s Manifesto for Change - understanding what it means for your organisation
