The International Fundraising Congress (IFC) Pop Ups 2019 returns to Jo’burg, Durban and Cape Town in February and March

Following on from the huge success of the IFC Pop Ups in 2017 and 2018, the Resource Alliance, in partnership with Nedbank Private Wealth, GIBS, UKZN Foundation and The Bertha Centre for Social Innovation and Entrepreneurship at UCT GSB, is bringing a fresh selection of some of the best video sessions from IFC 2018 in Holland and Asia to South Africa in early 2019.

These one day learning and networking events will take place in Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town during February and March 2019. 

The IFC Pop Ups are an amazing opportunity for local fundraisers and social impact leaders to access the IFC magic, innovation and inspiration close to home.
They are one-day fundraising inspiration and learning sessions jam packed with some of the best speakers from IFC Holland and IFC Asia.
Presented in video format with live Q&A via Skype with some of the speakers, the IFC Pop Ups gives you the opportunity to learn from some of the world’s leading fundraising experts and network with peers on how to apply learnings locally.

Affordable and accessible, the IFC Pop Ups will give you great fundraising insight and inspiration.

This year’s programme will include both video (international) and live presentations (local) on a wide range of resource mobilisation themes, including:
