We’re delighted to say that, by popular demand, our Friday Fundraising Calls are coming back! If you’d like to grab a place, just reply to this message or email email@example.com – and we’ll send you the Zoom link for the session. These sessions have been incredibly popular in the past! Please help us spread the word about these events, videos and podcasts to other fundraisers, on email or via social media using #FridayFundraisingCall and @ChangeStarTweet.On the first Friday of every month (or thereabouts) at 11am we’ll be hosting an online event to bring fundraisers together and share some ideas and insights on how to do fundraising better. In each episode we’ll be joined by senior, experienced fundraiser to share their insights and experiences on a topic of particular practical interest and importance – from how to recruit new supporters to how to get the best from legacy appeals. We’ve already got some great people lined up, including Liam Whitton, Director of Fundraising and Communications at Humanists UK and Mark Barkaway, Head of Marketing & Income Generation at Albion in the Community. We’ll record the episode live with an online audience (including you, we hope!), and later we’ll upload video and audio recordings to the ChangeStar website in order to reach as many people as possible. In the first episode on Friday 3rd December we’re speaking to Paul White, the Head of Individual Giving at Addenbrooke’s Charitable Trust (ACT), about ‘How to build an IG programme at a hospital charity’. Over the last few years, Paul and his team have built an IG programme that has gained some incredible fundraising results, in both supporter development and recruitment campaigns. We’ll explore how they did it, as well as discuss the priorities for building an IG programme, how to recruit new supporters, building a regular giving product, and much more. There’ll also be time to ask questions and chat to other fundraisers. The session will be essential for anyone building an Individual Giving programme – whether at a hospital or any other charity. This session will be at 11am on Friday 3rd December.
