Fundraising leaders and experts from across the globe will come together for the International Fundraising Summit in London this July. The event brings together representatives from the major national associations to explore common issues; the opportunities, challenges and solutions for a rapidly changing fundraising climate.
Ceri Edwards, director of engagement and external affairs at the Institute of Fundraising, says: “With increased reliance on fundraising for income generation to a broad range of charitable organisations, new technological developments and close scrutiny of charitable activities, the international fundraising market is rapidly changing. It has never been more important that the sector comes together to share information and learn from one another, raising the bar in fundraising practice internationally.”
Last year’s Summit, hosted in San Francisco, saw representation from Brazil to Australia, France to Kenya and China to Spain – a diverse fundraising community with a renewed commitment to collaborate, strengthen and develop the profession.
This year’s event will be hosted by the UK Institute of Fundraising at the end of its annual Fundraising Convention in London, on 5 July 2018.
