July’s First Friday: London

FF London Feb 1IFC UK’s next free First Friday fundraising advice session will take place on Friday 7 July 2017, 13:30-16:30 (BST) and will be an open round table session for fundraisers working in small charities, so book now as these sessions are extremely popular!

If you’re responsible for fundraising in a small charity, come along with your fundraising questions and issues. Topic areas from previous sessions have included:

  • Developing a fundraising strategy.
  • Major Donor Fundraising for small charities.
  • Legacy Fundraising for small charities.
  • Online fundraising for small charities.

The IFC set up First Friday fundraising sessions to create a free space for non-profit organisations to gain knowledge and advice on a range of fundraising topics.

These workshops are a great opportunity for you to meet face to face with a fundraising expert and get their support with a particular issue or challenge you may be facing.

Leading the next session is IFC CEO, Bill King, who has nearly 20 years fundraising experience, for a wide range of organisations and covering most areas, including community, event, trust, corporate, membership development and major gift fundraising. He is a respected trainer and exceptional mentor and has secured major grants from statutory funders, trusts and foundations, businesses and individuals.

Bill has had particular success with major appeals, directly managing a successful £30 million plus capital project at Chetham’s School of Music, working as Charitable Trust Fundraiser for Manchester Children’s Hospital Appeal, and advising a number of organisations on setting up and running big appeals, including Alton College, Royal Free Hospital, National Army Museum and the Neuro Therapy Centre.

Booking:

Places for this workshop are free but there is a £30 booking deposit that will be returned to you after you have attended the event.

This workshop is open to anyone who works for a non-profit organisation with an annual turnover of under £1 million and is interested in fundraising.

The session will take place at BT, BT Centre, 81 Newgate Street, London, EC1A 7AJ.
