July’s First Friday: London

IFC 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.


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.
