The Institute of Fundraising East Midland's first annual conference will focus on inspiring donors to go on a long and fruitful journey with your organisation.

We know it can be a challenge to find the budget to travel to London for training and inspiration so we have been working hard to bring some of the top speakers in fundraising to you here in the East Midlands.

Our opening plenary will be sharing results from the recent Commission on Donor Experience, followed by a choice of sessions then finishing with the inspirational Richard Radcliffe.

Sessions include:

  • Challenges for fundraisers in the future with Daniel Fluskey of the Institute of Fundraising
  • Grants and Foundations - what to do AND what not to do with Karon Phillips of Citrus Consultancy
  • Setting up a lottery with Richard Simmonite of Whittington Moor Printing Works
  • Kickstart your major donor programme with Mike Bartlett of Money Tree Fundraising
  • Creating a culture of fundraising throughout your organisation with Esther Preston of Ashgate Hospice
  • The ten most important things donors have told me with Richard Radcliffe
