Charity Digital News was lucky enough to attend Charity IT Leaders launch party at the Sky Bar, Grange St Pauls Hotel, on Thursday 14th March. The event, sponsored by Salesforce.com, was to mark the name change from Charities Consortium IT Directors Group (CCitDG) to Charity IT Leaders; much less of a tongue twister!
The group has been in around since June 2000 and is made up of 85 charities including Save the Children, British Heart Foundation and The Salvation Army. It was great to mingle with those in charge of IT at some of Britain’s largest charities and hear about their exciting plans for the future. Former Chair, David Clayden, gave a short introduction about the history and achievements of the group so far, followed by a speech from the current Chair, Laura Dawson.
The canapés were delicious, all washed down with cold white wine. All in all, a great night.
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.
