Enthusiastic and passionate fundraisers have made a stand in 2016 by joining the Donor Commission in an effort to effect positive change to the way we fundraise. The first phase is to develop and define practical ways to help fundraisers everywhere deliver happy, satisfying and effectives experiences for donors. The goal is to transform fundraising in Britain and around the globe.
