Voting for the overall winners of the 2015 Digital Leaders 100 is now open. Voting will close at the end of May and winners will be announced at the awards gala on 25th June.
The Digital Leaders 100 was established in 2013 by our sister publication Digital by Default News and the Digital Leaders programme to celebrate those who are leveraging digital to transform the UK’s public services – and the social and economic opportunities of its citizens.
You now have the opportunity to select overall winners from 100 finalists across ten categories covering the public, private and non-profit sectors, including Charity Digital Leader of the Year.
The results of the public vote will be combined with the deliberations of an expert judging panel to determine the overall winners, culminating in a black-tie gala dinner on 25th June at the Hilton Hotel on Park Lane in Central London.
Details of the evening – which will include a champagne reception, gourmet dinner and dancing until late – are available on the DL 100 website. Learn more about attending and book your table here.
Robin Knowles of Digital Leaders commented: “We set up Digital Leaders because we passionately believe that sharing knowledge and experience is one of the keys to the UK’s future success as a world-leading digital nation.
“The Digital Leaders 100 Awards were inspired by the digital leaders who each year have nominated both the leaders of this transformation, but also the many at the coalface who are rarely recognised from across all the community’s sectors. The DL100 list is therefore a list that celebrates this. I’m excited about what the 2015 awards have in store.”
eBay has proved to be one of the more effective ways to engage donors online and raise funds. While a lot of the money raised comes from the sale of goods, successful charities have also managed to establish a donor base that allows them to raise ongoing funds.
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.
