Following last year’s sell-out launch, the International Fundraising Congress (IFC) Pop-Ups is back in Cape Town (8 March), Durban (15 March) and Johannesburg (28 March), with a fresh, new programme of fundraising inspiration and high-quality learning.
Curated by the Resource Alliance in partnership with Nedbank Private Wealth, the University of Stellenbosch Business School and the Gordon Institute of Business Science (GIBS), the IFC Pop-Ups will include some of the best video sessions from IFC and IFC Asia 2017, giving local social impact leaders and fundraisers the opportunity to learn from some of the world’s brightest fundraising stars.
‘Each IFC Pop-Up is packed with energising, inspiring and enlightening video sessions, delivered by international fundraising experts. There will also be live Skype Q&A with some of the speakers, as well as a presentation by one of South Africa’s most successful fundraising teams – the Red Cross Children’s Hospital Trust,’ says Sarah Scarth, the Resource Alliance’s Africa Director.
The IFC Pop-Ups 2018 programme will also include sessions on major gift fundraising essentials, how philanthropy is changing in Europe and how to adapt, building a bequest programme from scratch, how to fundraise from US foundations, building a fundraising strategy in seven steps, how to use data to drive results, and lots more.
Nedbank Private Wealth’s Head of Philanthropy, Noxolo Hlongwane, has first-hand experience of the benefit of the IFC, having attended the conference as a speaker in 2017: ‘We are committed to strengthening the philanthropic sector and passionate about our work with non-profit organisations, who are intrinsic to the sustainability of our country.’
‘The IFC Pop-Ups are a great opportunity to practically equip organisations on their fundraising strategies. And so we are thrilled that we are partnering with the Resource Alliance once again to bring these valuable sessions to South Africa in 2018,’ says Noxolo.
The cost to attend the IFC Pop-Ups is R990, which includes refreshments and lunch and there are discounts for those who book early. Simply use the promotional code EARLYBIRD when booking. To find out more and to secure your seat, visit www.resource-alliance.org/events/south-africa-pop-ups/
