About Fundraising Week

Fundraising Week is an immersive experience for everyone in the charity sector addressing the issues that are fundamentally changing the way fundraisers work.

Next year's event will be brimming with innovative ideas and fresh thinking to inject into your fundraising strategy, helping you take it to the next level.

  • Hear from fundraising directors and leading experts in key areas such as digital, major donor fundraising and corporate partnerships
  • Discover practical solutions to the issues you’re facing and debate and discuss the key issues on the fundraising agenda
  • Explore what the future holds for fundraising, helping charities move forward

Fundraising Week allows you to build a personalised programme of learning that is directly relevant to your work. You can pick and choose the sessions that are more relevant to you and make sure you cover the issues that matter most to your organisation.

There’s something for everyone, whether you’re a small charity looking to develop your fundraising strategy or an established charity seeking new ideas and inspiration from others in the sector, there are a whole range of sessions to suit your needs.
