All the latest from Charity Finance Week 2020

A dedicated week of digital events, content and thought leadership initiatives

Charity Finance Week is returning on 23-27 November 2020 and this time we are going virtual!

Set against a backdrop of the Covid-19 pandemic, charities continue to operate under immense pressure as income streams dry up, resources are squeezed, and the need for support from beneficiaries is greater than ever. Having passed through the first wave of the global crisis, now we face the reality of living with the virus and the likelihood of further socioeconomic disruption. On the flipside; innovation, digital transformation and flexible working solutions have been fast-tracked and implemented at speed.

With all this in mind, we have chosen to combine three of our successful events – the Charity Finance Summit, the Charity Technology Conference and the Charity Fraud Conference, and redesigned the programme to take place across four half-days.
We have also commissioned series of special blogposts exploring the way finance leaders and charities have responded to this year's crisis.
