A one day un-conference on developing fundraising skills
"Come to Fundraising Camp and spend a day learning, talking about and maybe even solving the issues and challenges you face in your fundraising. Learn from other fundraisers in your area, find out how they’ve dealt with similar problems, and share your experience.
Make some useful contacts and maybe even enjoy a very practical day of sharing fundraising advice.
Think of it as those often valuable networking chat sessions you have at normal conferences but for a whole day.
No tents involved
Fundraising Camp is a one-day ‘unconference’-like event for fundraisers, one of the first of its kind for fundraisers in the UK. The first one took place on 24 September in Oxford.
An unconference is an unstructured conference: there are no set speakers and no set topics. As a participant you are invited to suggest a topic at the beginning of the day. It could be something you know about, it could be a problem or a question you have and you want help on.
Be prepared to speak on it – not with a Powerpoint or anything like that (but let us know if you want to). When we all agree the topic sessions at the beginning of the day, chances are there will be others who can join you in the session.
Fundraising Camp is informal and relentlessly practical. No-one is coming to judge the quality of how you present. Everyone will be there wanting to improve their fundraising."
