Fundraising Online #FRO16, curated by the Resource Alliance, is a free, virtual conference designed by fundraisers, for fundraisers which this year takes place from 11-12 May 2016.
Expert speakers from all over the world will gather online to offer advice on the latest digital fundraising techniques and technology to help organisations succeed.
The focus is on providing practical solutions that are usable in real world scenarios.
Last year 3 000 people around the world signed up for Fundraising Online, 244 of which were from South Africa.
This year in addition to the virtual conference, the Resource Alliance is curating two one-day events in Cape Town (12 May 2016) and Johannesburg (20 May 2016), aimed at helping even more social impact organisations in South Africa access this amazing event.
“Fundraising Online #FRO16 is a fantastic opportunity for non-profit organisations to discover how to unlock funding online, expand their digital fundraising knowledge and skills and learn from the world's leading digital fundraising authorities,” says Sarah Scarth, Southern Africa area representative for the Resource Alliance.
“We’ll be showing a selection of curated #FRO16 sessions on big screens followed by live Q&A with some of our great speakers. Plus there’ll be snacks and time for networking,” she says.
