Next #FridayFundraisingCall – ‘How to transform your income from legacies’

We’re delighted to announce details of our next ChangeStar Friday Fundraising call on 11am on Friday 11th February 2022!

We’ll be speaking to James Huitson – Senior Global Fundraising Manager at Care International – about a subject that many charities feel they could be doing better – ‘How to transform your income from legacies’.

If you’d like to grab a place, email Richard now –

Many charities still aren’t making the most of their legacy fundraising and their opportunities to gain gifts in wills. In this session we’ll explore a very simple approach to planning and executing a legacy programme that has helped charities increase their number of legacy pledgers by up to 800% year on year.

There’ll be plenty of practical insight and lessons to apply to your fundraising. There’ll also be time at the end to ask questions and chat to other fundraisers. The session is essential for anyone wanting a simple way to increase your legacy income.

This session will be at 11am on Friday 11th February 2022. If you’d like to grab a place, email Richard now – But hurry – these sessions are proving to be incredibly popular!

We hope these events, videos and podcasts will be of real use to fundraisers, so please do help us spread the word about them – on email or via social media using #FridayFundraisingCall, @ChangeStarTweet and @RichardDocwra.

A quick reminder of what our Friday Fundraising Calls are all about – on the first Friday of every month 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’ll record the episode live with an online audience, and then upload video and audio recordings to the ChangeStar website – in order to reach as many people as possible.
