Public fundraising grows ever more challenging, with increased competition and decreasing returns seen with traditional fundraising methods such as phone and face to face. Digital fundraising is the method showing the most growth, but so many Irish charities and campaigns struggle to use it.
Digital fundraising is often hobbled by unrealistic expectations, or a vicious circle where there is never enough investment to generate a return, and hence never enough return to justify investment. How can fundraisers for progressive charities and campaigns navigate this? How can we effectively fundraise online in a time of increased competition and reduced trust?
Come to Digital FundCamp to learn about what works and doesn’t work in digital fundraising – from local and international experts who are getting real results.
This day-long Digital FundCamp will feature expert sessions on:
- digital fundraising best practice
- setting realistic expectations and targets
- integrating campaigning and fundraising online
- how small tweaks to online fundraising materials (such as donation pages, landing pages and emails) can bring in increased revenue
- how to integrate offline and online fundraising methods.
We’ll also have Ignite presentations and ‘Open Space’ peer knowledge exchange sessions, and the day will be packed full of useful exercises so you can put what you learn into practice right away.
Who is it suitable for?
- Non-profit organisations and social enterprises
- Progressive causes and campaigns
- Cultural institutions
