Event description

Description

Come to Fundraising Camp Dundee and spend a day learning, talking about and maybe even solving the issues and challenges you face in your fundraising. Learn from other fundraisers in your area, find out how they've dealt with similar problems, and share your experience.

Make some useful contacts and maybe even enjoy a very practical day of sharing fundraising advice.

Think of it as those often valuable networking chat sessions you have at normal conferences but for a whole day.

Host

Fundraising Camp Dundee is hosted by Howard Lake, publisher of UK Fundraising, the online news and community site for professional charity fundraisers.

No tents involved

Fundraising Camp is a one-day 'unconference'-style event for fundraisers, the first series of its kind for fundraisers in the UK. We've run 20 since the first one in Oxford in 2013.

An unconference is an unstructured conference: there are no set speakers and no set topics. As a participant you are invited to suggest a topic at the beginning of the day. It could be something you know about, it could be a problem or a question you have and you want help on.

Be prepared to speak on a topic - not with a Powerpoint or anything like that (but let us know if you want to). When we all agree the topic sessions at the beginning of the day, chances are there will be others who can join you in the session.

Fundraising Camp is informal and relentlessly practical. No-one is coming to judge the quality of how you present. Everyone will be there wanting to improve their fundraising.

What does a Fundraising Camp feel like?

The day will be planned out between us in the first half-hour. After that, there will be two, three or four short sessions (30 - 45 mins) at any one time running throughout the day.

Go to the ones that interest you most. If it's not quite right for you, you're allowed to leave and go to another session. (Try doing that at a regular formal conference!).

We encourage participants in each session to take notes of what gets shared and learned, and then for these to be shared online - as a blog post, a video, a photo, or send it to us at UK Fundraising if you prefer.

Rules of Fundraising Camp

If there are any rules, then these probably cover it:

  • do join in rather than expect to hide at the back of a conference hall
  • share what you know at the event
  • afterwards, share what you learn from the event online e.g. via a blog post
  • be nice to others, enjoy a different kind of event
  • no commercial selling - only paying sponsors get to run a session about what they offer (and you don't even have to go to those sessions if you don't feel they are relevant)

Experts

To each Fundraising Camp we'll invite half a dozen or so local fundraising, business, philanthropy or grantmaking experts to help ensure we've got even more practical fundraising knowledge and experience available at the event.

More Fundraising Camps

This is the 21st Fundraising Camp. We run four or five a year all around the UK, including in towns that don't often get a fundraising training course or conference. Can you donate a venue for one in your town in return for free places and publicity? Let us know.

Why 'Fundraising Camp'?

We were inspired to run an event like this for fundraisers by events such as Barcamp Nonprofits and MuseumCamp. These focus on the ideas, skills and experience that conference delegates themselves have, but which seldom get shared while they all listen to the speakers.

So, we called this new kind of event Fundraising Camp.

Thank you to Fundraising Camp's sponsors

Circle Scotland CIC - The Circle

The Circle
The Circle provides a resource base and a shared working and learning environment in Dundee. We want to develop a community that has a shared sense of collective purpose and reach. We want to be creative and resilient. We do this by providing a range of resources, services and training thereby supporting and inspiring the community of Dundee. We are encouraging social innovation by encouraging people from diverse backgrounds to come together on projects, events and enterprises. We aim to host ‘lunch and learns’ with our tenants and stimulate new ways of thinking. The diversity of The Circle community leads to new opportunities and robust and flexible responses to common challenges. We are doing things differently and moving away from the silos that keep sectors and structures apart. We believe the activities of The Circle can offer innovative training and employment opportunities. Our strengths in collaboration, partnership-working and connectivity to the wider community can facilitate such opportunities. As a result of piloting the space for the past year or more we have seen an increase in the number of volunteers involved with our work and the work of our tenants.

Our tenants are ACK, Ashton McGill, Apex Scotland, Cornerstone, Fields in Trust, Food Training, Prestige Health and Safety Training, Rathbone, The Story Edge, Lumilo Casting Studio. We seek and encourage tenants to provide employment or training opportunities in their organisations. By providing affordable space, a vibrant environment and visibility of our tenants we are supporting them meet their own employability and training objectives.
