Being a sole fundraiser can be a lonely gig at the best of times, add in a global pandemic and it’s at times completely isolating!
This session will look at some top tips to help you stay sane (hopefully) and navigate the world of the sole fundraiser.
The internet is a busy place, so how do you make sure that every piece of comms you put out into the world works its hardest for your cause?
In this session, Alex shares her top tips to help you and your organisation effectively communicate online as well as which online marketing “should”s you can throw in the bin.
This talk will run through what it’s like from a professional filmmakers perspective to work with charities, so not only are you better prepared when you do work with a production company, but you’ll also have more knowledge to film more content yourselves. We’ll talk through the initial stages, what you should be asking and what ideas you can bring, to the production side of a filming day, and then talk about what you can do without a production company to keep content going for your supporters.
Hear how Mortal Fools revisited their charitable purpose at the start of the pandemic and used it to successfully pivot their operations into fully digital operations and then into a hybrid model.
They will share:
– what they’ve learned
– what digital arts and events have enabled
– work with new audiences, partners and networks
– how they’ve talked about this to funders
– how all of this has supported the charity to double in size in the last 16 months.
Since the pandemic charities have changed the way we fundraise and connect with supporters. At The Bike Project, agile planning allowed them not only to survive but thrive. With digital at the heart of their organisation, Jess will talk about how they brought to life a bespoke digital fundraising challenge, Refugee Routes (https://refugee-routes.thebikeproject.co.uk/), to continue bringing in revenue, cement deeper engagement of the cause with supporters and set the future for how fundraising may look for the charity.
Jess will share her experience of launching Refugee Routes showing how integral being agile, storytelling through stewardship and utilising tech was to the success of the campaign.
Digital is no longer optional. You don’t necessarily need a big team to make the most out of digital channels. This session will help you with practical tips to improve your small charity’s digital presence.
In partnership with #SmallCharityWeek
Every day, small charities across the world uplift, repair, and add value to their community.
They do this without big teams, reach, and sometimes – without budget.
July’s conference is dedicated to giving a platform to the brilliant small charity fundraisers doing big things, and the people who help them.
Join us for an action-packed two-hour summit that will give small charity fundraisers the tools they need to change the world, and remind larger charity fundraisers of the key skills we need for ongoing success.

The world is going hell in a handcart and Trust Fundraisers are going to have a massive part to play in clearing up the mess. But our role can sometimes feel like the fundraising poor relation when it comes to training, support and understanding.
In 2020 Apollo Fundraising and Fundraising Everywhere brought you the first international conference dedicated to Trust Fundraising. Featuring sessions from trust fundraisers and funders from around the world, our aim is to give you the skills, inspiration and confidence to be bold in the way we respond to the current challenges.
