Fundraising First Thing: A marathon, not a sprint

14 March 2017 Events

Interactive breakfast seminars which provide a unique forum for open debate and an opportunity to connect with your peers.

THIS EVENT IS SOLD-OUT. 

To register for the waiting list e-mail [email protected]

Recent research shows that over half of charities have seen income rise from event fundraising; but are they maximising their true potential? Join us in March to discuss strategies for enhancing the reach & impact of your event, and how an effective communication strategy can foster year-round engagement and mobilise new supporters.

This event is designed to provide space for charities to debate with other charities. As a result, there are no corporate spaces available and we will withdraw places booked by non-charity delegates. We will issue a refund minus an administration fee of 15%.  

If you are interested in sponsoring a future FFT please contact Yvette on 020 7819 1202 or via [email protected].
