On Thursday 24th January 2013, the Institute of Fundraising partners in Fundraising awards will take place at St John’s Wood in the Nursery Pavilion at Lords Cricket Ground. Hundreds of industry professionals and charity contacts will be attending. The expert judging panel will announce the winners on the night, and will be declared as leaders in their specific fields.
IoF individuals or organisational members can vote from now until 5pm on 21st December 2012. There are multiple technology categories such as best database supplier, with nominees being Blackbaud, Donorflex, thankQ and WealthEngine. Other categories include best giving platform, and best digital partner, with separate donor-facing and charity-facing awards.
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.
