EFA's Skillshare 

Skillshare is EFA's long-standing annual event for the European fundraising community. In recent years, Skillshare has travelled to Amsterdam, Barcelona, Berlin, Bratislava, Brussels, Krakow, Paris, Rome, Oslo and Vienna. Focusing on current fundraising issues and challenges for fundraisers and fundraising associations, this event is a unique opportunity for fundraising associations to come together for an exciting programme of exchange, learning and networking.

The 13th Annual EFA Skillshare and EFA's 20th Anniversary Celebration take place in Dublin on 24-25 November with the Skillshare theme Amplifying Impact. All fundraisers and others working in the civil society sector are welcome to join!

Webinar: What’s going on in Brussels?

An exclusive webinar for members of national fundraising associations and the other bodies within EFA's network, this hour-long session is designed to bring you up to speed with key regulatory issues at EU level for fundraisers. Hosted by Simona Biancu (EFA Board - Chair of Public Affairs Committee), Dr. Sergey Lagodinsky (MEP), The Greens, and Yvette Kleekamp, Advisor Public Affairs at Goede Doelen Nederland and EFA Delegate, the October event will provide an overview of recent updates to the European space for civil society organisations. In particular it will focus on the European Parliament Legal Affairs Committee proposal for “A statute for European cross-border associations and non-profit organisations” with the aim also to encourage EFA members and our members’ members to take an active part in the public consultation. Join us on Tuesday 25 October 2022 (10am-11am CET). Free to attend.
