About the Event

Two-day online conference – Wednesday 31 January and Thursday 1 February 2024

It continues to be challenging and uncertain times for fundraising and fundraisers. The pressure to raise funds to support charity causes, while the need for support from charities rises, makes fundraising a very stressful and never-ending ask. Now more than ever it is important to be aware of the latest trends, strategies, and technological advances to help keep your fundraising relevant so you continue to reach current and new supporters.

This conference will help you to be more effective in your role, build donor relations, write proposals, and manage events and other relevant fundraising topics. You will hear from experts, and perspectives from those doing real and recent fundraising work. You will have the opportunity to network and take part in peer-to-peer support to share best practices and advice on handling specific challenges.

What is included in the price?

Attendance to the conference, keynote sessions, panel discussions, session talks, networking sessions and a physical copy of The Complete Fundraising Handbook.

You will also have access to the post-conference hub, which will consist of:

  • Recordings of opening and closing keynotes
  • Certificate of attendance for CPD hours
