    First Friday Fundraiser Session

    The First Friday Fundraisers Sessions are an opportunity for sharing information and knowledge with colleagues and peers internationally within the fundraising industry. Each month looks at a different subject and topic concerning fundraising. The sessions are organised by the International Fundraising Consultancy and bring together the experience of different speakers from the fundraising world both locally and internationally. By working together the sessions assist personal development, encourage greater understanding of the industry globally and increase overall knowledge.

    The First Friday Fundraisers Sessions are run internationally and have fundraising sessions in different countries all at the same time each month. Fundamentally, it is the international fundraising community being connected by doing the same thing at the same time, (more or less), throughout the world.

    The next First Friday Fundraiser Session…

    Overseas Adventure Fundraising – Have you been missing out on this fundraising opportunity?

    First Friday Fundraiser Sessions re start after the vacation full of energy, ready to get connected and up for new challenges.
    Inspired by travels abroad during the summer, places we’ve visited and adventures we have had, the next First Friday on 06 October will be talking about overseas challenges and how they can substantially contribute to your fundraising income.
    Overseas challenges are not new in the US or the UK and have work incredibly successfully for thousands of not for profit organisations raising literally millions. War Child in The Netherlands have for the past few years run the Kilimanjaro challenge and found it not only to be successful as generating fundraising income, but also an incredibly powerful way to attract, engage and convert new donors.
    Jurian Stevens, Founder of ‘For All Reasons’ will be joining us on 06 October to explain about his work with Plan Netherlands and SOS Kinderdorpen and how they have benefitted from working with him to organise, successfully run and financially benefit from overseas challenges.
    We will also have case studies of other organisations internationally who have benefitted not just from income, but also by:
    ·        Attracting new individual donors
    ·        Developing relationships with corporate sponsors, enhancing their long term relationships
    ·        Site visits to projects and programs, making the stories behind the fundraising real
    ·        Giving a new and exciting edge to the regular ‘ask’.
    If overseas challenges is new to you, or has been on the agenda but never made it into the strategy, come to the First Friday Fundraiser Session on 06 Oct to discover how it can really benefit your fundraising income.
