Institute of Fundraising: The National Fundraisers' Convention

National Fundraisers' Convention 2004, 5-7 July 2004, Hilton Birmingham Metropole.

Community and volunteer-based fundraising should be at the heart of any charity's income generation strategy - sadly this is rarely the case.

The Community and Volunteers' track this year sets out to demonstrate how an integrated approach can add significant value to the overall fundraising effort within your organisation, and explores the inter-relationships and synergies between the fundraising disciplines. Taking what are ordinarily considered 'specialist' disciplines such as legacies, major donors, working with the local media, direct marketing and telephone-based fundraising, a combination of leading practitioners and top agency consultants within the sector will help you apply these skills and strategies within a community fundraising setting.

For example, in the 'Take a Street' workshop on Monday, participants will make a 'virtual visit' to an average street in an average town and explore all the fundraising opportunities that could be exploited, whether they would ordinarily be considered 'community fundraising' or not.

Don't be surprised to see speakers such as Joe Saxton, Richard Radcliffe, Stephen Pidgeon, and Karl Holweger. There will also be representatives from Macmillan Cancer Relief, the NSPCC, the British Red Cross, Guide Dogs and the RNIB.
