At the Institute of Fundraising Technology Group’s Annual Conference on May 20th, Facebook Europe’s partner manager John Carr will demonstrate how not-for-profits can boost their efforts to raise awareness and donations by leveraging the power of social media.
Carr will discuss key trends in social media, as identified by Facebook and Instagram, about how people consume media and the way content is created, and explain how these trends can help charities engage with supporters.
At the event, delegates can choose from 12 informative sessions across three streams – Managing Change, Keeping it Legal and Skill-Building.
On the Skill-Building stream, skilled practitioners including Laila Takeh of Raising IT and Helena Sharpstone of Sharpstone Skinner will explain how individuals can improve their skills in social media, project management and data management, add value to their charity and enhance career potential.
IoF members can get their ticket for £70 (non-members’ tickets cost £95). The price includes access to a networking and drinks reception.
The conference takes place at America Square, near Tower Hill in London. Learn more and register for the event 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.
