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.

Topics include:

  • Maximising resource
  • Digital
  • Applying for and aceing your Radio 4 appeal
  • Effective communications (online and offline)
  • Data for small charities
  • Virtual vs hybrid vs in-person
  • Prioritising as a solo fundraiser
  • Managing volunteers

*NEW* Our two-track conference will now feature completely interactive workshops to make sure you get the answers you need for the challenges you face. Don’t worry introverts, we still have a track of camera-free presentations so you can lunch and learn.

Accessibility

All of our events are subtitled using automated subtitles.

If you have extra accessibility needs (including sharing slides in advance) or want to chat to us about the platform, email [email protected]

All of our speakers are paid for their time.

Launching your first fundraising product: limited resource, big impact! Jess Miller
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.
