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.
