About Fundraising Week

Third Sector’s Fundraising Week brings together a series of events and activities where leading fundraising professionals will come together to inspire, share & celebrate their successes.

Skillfully designed with the busy schedules of charity professionals in mind, Fundraising Week 2017 will offer an exciting mix of networking socials, webinars, conference, round-tables, awards, workshops & much more spanning a five day period from May 22 to 26.

At the heart of Fundraising Week will be Third Sector’s Annual Fundraising Conference 2017.

Building on the positive feedback from the 2016 Conference, our upcoming conference will be packed with even more innovative ideas, hot topics and sector concerns that will help you to further develop and hone your fundraising strategies.

Whether you work for a small charity which is looking to develop its fundraising strategy or an established organisation seeking new ideas and inspirations from others in the sector, there will be a range of sessions to suit your needs. You will be able to pick and choose the sessions that are most relevant to your work and the issues that matter most to your organisation:

  • 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
