International Fundraising Congress (IFC) in South Africa

The Resource Alliance

So, you’re in touch with a prospect who you know has money to give. But she wants to know what the impact of her gift will be over 10 years. Fair enough. You’ve got the answer, right?

No? Then how can you expect her to trust you with her money?

Far too many organisations talk about the many fabulous projects they run without really understanding the impact those projects will have. Or they understand it but can't communicate it.

Joe Jenkins of The Children’s Society (UK) and Tracey Pritchard of Friends of the Earth (UK) will share results-boosting insights in their session, Impact Reporting: The holy grail of describing the change your charity exists to achieve, at the first IFC Pop Up event in Johannesburg on 16 February.

Other session in this unique day-long event highlighting some of the best workshops of IFC 2016 include:

  • Innovation and technology for bigger impact - lessons from the south. Bruno Benjamin, Fundación Avina (Brazil) and Fabio Erdos (Brazil)
  • Win that partnership: How to talk so companies will listen and how to listen so companies will talk. Rob Woods, Bright Spot Fundraising (UK) and Ben Swart, NSPCC (UK)
  • Write what the funder wants to read: Drafting winning proposals for grant making foundations. Arnout Mertens, SOFIA (Italy)
  • How to engage with Legacies. Stephen George, Southe (UK) and Allan Freeman, Freestyle Marketing (UK)
  • Putting your supporter in the story, and getting your story straight. Matthew Sherrington, Inspiring Action (UK)
  • Reinventing F2F: The impact of increased engagement and VR. David Cravinho, UNICEF (Switzerland) and Daniel McDonnell, DT McDonnell Ltd (Thailand)
  • Relationship Fundraising. Kevin Schulman, Founder and Managing Partner of DonorVoice (UK)

Other events will take place on 9 March at the Stellenbosch Business School in Cape Town, and 22 March at the University of Kwa-Zulu Natal Business School in Durban.

Each time slot throughout the day will give you a choice of two sessions to attend. (Psst… best bet: Send two folks so your organisation can benefit from all the sessions!)

The workshops are delivered via video sessions and followed by live Skype-link Q&As with the speakers. The cost is just R750 per delegate. And for you early birders, there’s a discount rate for the first 80 delegates who register – but it ends 31 January. Use these discount codes to get R200 off: EARLYJOBURG, EARLYCAPETOWN and EARLYDURBAN.
