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].
