How Fundraising-Friendly Are You?

CEE Fundraising Conference 2019

As a charity, how fundraising-friendly are you? Is your organization support- and impact-oriented? Does your fundraising team communicate properly and operate with beneficiaries and donors in mind?


‘Fundraising Friendly’ is the title of the upcoming CEE Fundraising Conference in Bratislava, Slovakia on 9-11 October 2019. Join us at this annual meeting for fundraisers and changemakers who want to get inspiration from experienced peers and fellow practitioners on how to make a greater impact.

In his opening plenary, global legacy fundraising guru Richard Radcliffe (GB) will ask why donors do not remember what we tell them, and also explain how to make legacy giving easy. David Kravinchuk (CA) will investigate how we can use emotional storytelling to connect with our donors and inspire them to become our heroes. Brian Fitzgerald (NL) will focus on story mapping and provide a wider perspective on how a story can shape strategy and organizational culture. Corporate fundraising and non-profit partnerships 101 will be offered by corporate fundraisers Katalin Kovácsné Béres (HU) and Betsy Akin (US). A world-leading expert in online fundraising Michael Johnston (CA) will introduce the next generation of donors and provide a Digital Outlook for 2019. Those interested can also come to a one-on-one, speed-chess style, consultancy session with Mike. Helena Sharpstone (GB) will teach leaders how to understand what motivates modern fundraisers and how to develop a high-performance team mind-set. Local case studies will focus on the first major donor campaign by Sue Ryder – Jana Havlenová & Jan Kroupa (CZ) – and legacy and crowdfunding in Serbia with Jelena Burazerović (RS).

The conference will start with four masterclasses – about legacy giving, peer-to-peer campaigns, corporate fundraising and building big digital movements. Read more on masterclasses here.
