The mental and physical wellbeing of fundraisers and charity workers has been tested a lot this past year. The coronavirus pandemic has turned the fundraising sector upside down, and placed added stress on the fundraising efforts of non-profit organisations and fundraisers.

With the start of a new financial year, and with lockdown restrictions beginning to ease, the wellbeing of professionals in the charity sector has never been more important. However, it arguably has never been at more risk either. As the leader, or member, of a non-profit team, how will you balance the need for income, delivery and security with both your own, and your colleagues, wellbeing needs?

That’s why, this month’s webinar is a virtual summit focusing on wellbeing in the charity workplace. If you’re looking to support yourself and your team, then our Fundraising Everywhere Charity Workplace Wellbeing Virtual Summit is something you wouldn't want to miss.

Take a look at our insight into the summit below, including location, time, date and speaker highlights.

When and where is the event taking place?

The Charity Workplace Wellbeing Virtual Summit  is taking place on Thursday 22nd April 2021 and starts at 12pm (BST). The entire summit is being broadcast online and will be three hours and fifteen minutes long. 

We’re happy to announce that our sponsor for the event is the world's leading cloud software company, Blackbaud, who power social good. The virtual summit is also hosted in partnership with Claire Warner. 

What is being discussed at our Charity Workplace Wellbeing Virtual Summit?

Our virtual conference is looking to address the root cause of wellbeing within charity organisations. We’ll be looking at how a non-profit’s culture and processes can be changed to reduce employee burnout and improve productivity. The event is for staff and leaders at charities who care about the wellbeing of their fundraisers.

During the summit we will host a variety of sessions, including:

The event will be subtitled and recorded, and made available online for members who could not attend.

Fundraising Everywhere is pleased to announce that our new website is now live! After months of design, planning and hard work, we’ve finally launched a new site where fundraisers and Fundraising Everywhere members can access our online resources and get involved in our friendly online community. 

Since our foundation, Fundraising Everywhere has always looked to lend a helping hand to fundraisers everywhere, whether they’re an individual or work as part of a bigger non-profit organisation. 

A good fundraiser knows that the actual asking of money is only a small part of the whole fundraising campaign. The real time-consuming and important stuff happens before and after the asking of money. That’s why we offer support to fundraisers; through virtual conferences, monthly webinars and virtual support, we connect them directly to the proven methods, people, and new ideas that are guaranteed to help them raise more money. 

We hope that with the launch of our new website, we can continue to help give fundraisers the clarity, confidence and connections for success. Take a look at some of the new features we’ve added to the website, and how you can get involved, below.
