We all know how difficult it is to fundraise in the current climate. Now is a crucial time to learn from each other and share our best practices. The 2nd International Fundraising eConference is starting in a week, virtually bringing together thought leaders from around the world to share their best practices and tips.
World’s first all-virtual fundraising conference
Many organizations are cutting travel and conferences costs, yet this is a time when we need to come together, learn from each other, and support each other. The Resource Alliance decided to open its virtual doors by creating the world’s first virtual fundraising conference. It does not bill itself as a web seminar, rather “a fully interactive online conference that incorporates online learning, live chat, active movement in and out of exhibit booths and sessions, vendor presentations, and more.”
The conference takes place from May 11 -13. Last year, it attracted a worldwide audience of over 1800 fundraisers from 40 countries.
I had the pleasure of meeting Mal Warwick a few weeks ago and am personally a big fan of his work. Our discussion eventually turned to fundraising (of course) and to the shift of this arena online. He will be leading a session called “Raising more money in the Internet age” at the conference, to share a deeper understanding of his Four Keys to Fundraising: Choice, Information, Engagement, and Commitment.
Some other sessions:
- Breakthroughs in online fundraising – the emerging philanthropic web by our good friend Christine Egger
- Three key questions about fundraising online with Katya Andresen
- Five steps to fundraising more at lower cost with Noam Kostucki
and many more…
