The Royal College of Physicians is hosting the annual Charity Technology Conference on Monday 19th November. The aim of the event is to provide charities with valuable knowledge about how to utilise technology successfully within their campaigns. With technology constantly undergoing expansion and adaption, charities often find it difficult to stay ahead of the game.
Talks will be given by leading professionals, with some of the big names being The British Heart Foundation, The National Trust and the NSPCC. Case studies will be used to demonstrate how effective technology can be, with one example being Breast Cancer Care’s innovative use of Twitter which gained them 55% of their staff in eighteen months. Visitors will also be given the chance to engage in 1-2-1 sessions to ask advice and gain valuable tips about what is working in technology at the moment. For more information regarding specific sessions, view the full programme here.
Charities believe corporate fundraising is a key growth area. But recent research by the IoF has revealed that just 7% of charities with a corporate fundraising programme feel that it is “fully developed”. With this in mind, Virgin Money Giving is hosting a series of free live events between 5th and 7th October to help charities grow their corporate fundraising.
