Event Details

Leaders of fundraising operations often ask me to introduce them to their counterparts elsewhere.

However talented you are as a fundraiser, leading the function brings a set of problems which can be stressful and daunting when you face them alone.

What’s the solution?

The truth is, building a network and sharing challenges with people in the same boat is incredibly helpful, especially if you are a leader. So if you are a fundraising director, come and network with your peers and learn tried and tested strategies.

'I found the Breakfast Club incredibly helpful - both in terms of meeting people and sharing useful ideas. It was also uplifting and a great reminder of sound fundraising principles, as Rob's blogs and talks always are. I'd definitely recommend it.'

Alison Woolley, Head of Development, SOAS

The next Breakfast Club on 19th Sept, 8.30am – 11am, and will include the following:

  • Culture and mind-set for truly engaged supporters. Over the last few years, at Friends of the Earth and now The Children’s Society, Joe has been exploring different ways to transform these organisation’s approaches to fundraising.  This has involved significant change – in structures, processes, systems and more importantly, in culture and mind-set.  In this short, practical session, Joe will share the key concepts and what he has learned on the journey so far. With Joe Jenkins, Director of Fundraising and Supporter Engagement, The Children’s Society
  • The 4 Most Common Mistakes that make asking for a major gift unnecessarily difficult (and how to help your team succeed by avoiding them), with Rob Woods
  • An unrivalled networking opportunity and solidarity. The chance to quickly build your support network at a senior level.

 “The Breakfast Club is a brilliant idea – it was incredibly useful to meet other Heads and Directors of Fundraising, to share ideas and to grow my professional network."

Jennifer Coleman, Director of Development, Institute of Imagination
