Description

We are delighted to invite you to join us for the IoF NW Leaders in Fundraising Network on Thursday 7th February 2019 at Home Manchester, kindly sponsored by Charity Careers North West. The Fundraising Leaders Network meets twice a year and is an opportunity to hear from specialist speakers, share knowledge and best practice and network with peers.

February's IoF NW Leaders Network will be looking at local philanthropy across the north west, what it looks like now, what it might look like in the future and the potential for growth. We will also hear from local case studies about their successes and challenges of place based giving campaigns. Our panel will be looking at the relationship between fundraising and trustee boards, how different boards view and work with fundraising, engaging trustees in fundraising and what fundraising expertise boards should have.

As well as hearing from our guest speakers you will be able to put forward your questions and network with other leaders from across the North West.

Tickets are £15 for IoF members and £25 for non-members and includes a networking lunch provided by the excellent catering team at Home Manchester.

Please note this networking event is only open to people who lead their fundraising teams or have overall responsibility for fundraising in their organisation to ensure the group retains maximum value for everyone involved.

We look forward to seeing you on 7th February.


Speakers include:


Rhodri Davies, Head of Policy, CAF
What could philanthropy in the NW look like in 2030?

Rhodri Davies is Head of Policy at Charities Aid Foundation (CAF), and also leads Giving Thought – CAF’s in-house think tank focusing on current and future issues affecting philanthropy and civil society. He is the author of Public Good by Private Means: How philanthropy shapes Britain, which traces the history of philanthropy in Britain and what it tells us about the role of modern philanthropy. Beyond that, he has researched, written and presented on a wide range of topics – from social investment and civic philanthropy to the charitable applications of cutting-edge technologies such as artificial intelligence and blockchain – and is much in demand as an adviser to governments, businesses, charities and philanthropists.

Rhodri graduated from the University of Oxford with a first-class degree in Mathematics and Philosophy and embarked upon an academic career before migrating into public policy work, where he has spent over a decade specialising in the policy aspects of philanthropy and charitable giving.

A case study on place based giving- our successes, challenges and learning

Hilary will share their experience of developing this capital campaign and embedding a place based appeal.
