The podcast has been set up to help the fundraising community share and exchange insights across Europe. Within each episode, David discusses how fundraisers are adapting to the changing environment for nonprofits, what they are doing to strengthen and build sustainable supporter relationships and their overarching thinking in relation to current challenges, opportunities and trends. Combined with personal anecdotes, the goal is to create both insightful and engaging content that will inspire nonprofit leaders.
“For many years now, I’ve been running a podcast for the French fundraising community and we’ve found it to be a great way to explore current issues and to get to know the people delivering the work – what their thinking is and what ideas they have to share. It’s exciting now to have the opportunity to launch a parallel service across a European stage.
“Created by fundraisers for fundraisers, the podcast is your opportunity to hear some fantastic ideas for raising funds, while listening to fascinating people who will inspire you.”
The first edition of the podcast features an interview with Eugenia Mazurenko, CEO of the Zagoriy Foundation in Ukraine. In this moving interview, Eugenia shares her story of fleeing the invasion to find her family a safe place to live, while working to support civil society across the nation and channelling funding through to grassroots organisations operating at a local level. Eugenia appeals to the European fundraising and philanthropy community for support.
The social activist, communications and fundraising leader Araba Pilic shares her insights in our second episode. Here, she talks about her experiences ranging from her upbringing within a multi-cultural family to her performances on stage as the Queen in The Lion King musical in Berlin. In this podcast, we discuss the link between fundraising and activism, and why we should revolutionise our way of thinking in order to adapt our fundraising to a new generation of donors.
