- Fundraising for a new era - what lies ahead?
- What are the key drivers for sustainable fundraising growth?
- What do online fundraising platforms mean for the future of UK charity?
- Could we apply principles of behavioural science to improve donor acquisition?
Today the fourth Fundraising Live is taking place at the ILEC Conference Centre in London. This year's conference features a panel session on what lies ahead for fundraising. Panelists are Amanda Bringans, director of fundraising at British Heart Foundation and Institute of Fundraising chair; Nina Saffuri, director of fundraising at War Child; Peter Wanless, chief executive of NSPCC; and Margaret Casely-Hayford, chair of ActionAid.
Other speakers at the event include Charles Wells, chief marketing officer of JustGiving and Adil Husseini, director of fundraising and marketing at the Disasters Emergency Committee. Husseini will explore the DEC’s approach in galvanizing support across corporate partners, celebrities and charity member agencies in order to respond effectively to some of the world’s most overwhelming crises. He will also offer insight into how partner organisations can effectively maximise publicity and how charities can collaborate to drive responsive and impactful change.
Sessions on the following topics are also running: mass participation; using tech to enhance your grant application strategy; and developing leaders from within. There are also case studies from Greenpeace on real engagement and virtual reality, and from charity: water on its model for reinventing charity.
