To mark Local Charities Day, the Office for Civil Society supported initiative that takes place on 16 December, the Foundation for Social Improvement (FSI) is to host a lunchtime Twitter Q&A session.
The interactive #AskTheFundraiser session will feature input from a host of expert fundraisers and takes place on 16 December from 1pm to 3pm.
The FSI says the panel will do their best to answer any fundraising question, especially from small charities, if it is submitted between now and the 16 December. Charities need to tweet questions to @TheFSI using #AskTheFundraiser.
Pauline Broomhead, CEO at the FSI said: “Our Trends research shows that small charities are busier than ever. We hope that by running this lunchtime Twitter Q&A we are able to share our fundraising knowledge with those who might not have time to attend training.
“We want to support small, local charities on Local Charities Day so we are encouraging them to send in questions for our experts to answer.”
On Local Charities Day itself, FSI will also be running 20 webinars throughout the day on a variety of topics. Click here to find out more.
