February’s First Friday: Amsterdam


We know that your organisation works hard to refine and implement its mission. We can help you explore new ways of maximising impact and nurture the talent and knowledge of your volunteers and supporters.

Social enterprise is not new, but there is increasing evidence that social entrepreneurs and the ventures they run create real benefit. Social entrepreneurs can create services that fit the needs your charity is working to cover.

At IFC Netherland’s next First Friday fundraising advice session on 2nd February 2018, we will be working with Sonia Vidal, IFC’s new Associate in Amsterdam, looking at how to turn donor engagement into real financial support. We will help you explore the idea of social enterprise and find ways to support beneficiaries, donors and volunteers to co-create new social enterprise concepts.

The session will explore:

  • What is the problem YOU are solving?
  • How do YOU solve the problem?
  • How do YOU generate (sustainable) revenue through donor engagement through Social Enterprise?

We are looking for charities wanting to explore how they could support beneficiaries, donors and volunteers to create new social enterprise concepts and find funding sources to get the ventures off the ground.

Following on from this session, IFC is launching a new programme to help you explore the idea of social enterprise. This programme is aimed to support charities willing to work with passionate and committed supporters and co-create social enterprise concepts which will support the work done by the charity, both by the means of income and mission

Together, we can help your organisation build a sustainable income stream and maximise impact.
