G20 leaders urged to take action to protect & expand civic spaceAugust 10, 2022
A free global face-to-face (F2F) summit is taking place online on 22 September. The event will take place twice on this date to enable people from across the world to pick the time that suits their location best.
The Global Face2Face Fundraising Summit is organised by the Austrian fundraising association, Fundraising Verband Austria, and follows on from the 2020 events, which saw over 2,500 participants across the two editions.
As before, the programme will cover F2F fundraising issues worldwide, with sessions this year chaired by F2F experts including Daryl Upsall, from Daryl Upsall & Associates and Daryl Upsall Consulting International; Simon Scriver, from Everywhere+ & Fundraising Everywhere; Daniel McDonnell, a UNICEF global fundraising specialist; and Ali Jones from Oxfam America.
Speaking ahead of the Summit, Upsall commented:
“Covid-19 presented many exceptional challenges to the nonprofit organisations and agencies around the world and yet, in hindsight, was also an opportunity to take F2F to the next level. The sector was bold, creative and highly innovative in finding new ways do business. New ways of working, and greater integration of digital/social and telephone ensured F2F fundraisers had channels to communicate with donors, even when under lockdown. Payment, CRM management and back office systems made technological leaps at a speed that would not have happened without COVID. I applaud the sector for what it has achieved.
“For me the time has now come to turn the focus from recruiting ever higher volumes of new F2F donors to recruiting ever higher quality donors, and in doing so massively reduce attrition and increase the long-term donor life value.”
