Event Details

We know that volunteers are a lynchpin of Community Fundraising. However, over time, we have seen the number of fundraising volunteer groups decline.

Our speakers will showcase the work they have done to buck this trend, providing ideas, both large and small scale, that you can apply to your own volunteer strategy. 


Speakers:

Mark Winton - Head of Community Fundraising UK - Marie Curie

Mark WintonIf you missed hearing about Marie Curie's programme of community-based fundraising groups at the Scottish Conference this year, here is another chance! This time, we have Mark Winton, Head of Community Fundraising UK - the man behind the fundraising group strategy at Marie Curie. Over the last 7 years, Marie Curie has seen its network of fundraising groups expand to over 500 across the UK, 91 of which are in Scotland.

Mark will talk about why and how he developed the strategy for the fundraising group programme back in 2010, how it has been successfully implemented and ways in which you could apply this approach to your own charity.

(Please note - if you attended the Marie Curie session at the Scottish Conference, much of the content will be the same)

Organiser

Scottish Community Special Interest Group

The Scottish Community Special Interest Group was set up to provide a forum for discussion and networking by fundraisers from all charities; large, medium and small with an interest in community fundraising and volunteering.

We welcome members from any organisation interested in raising money within this market and encourage those with little or no experience to attend as well as those who have been working Community Fundraising for some time. We aim to establish and share best practice in community fundraising and provide an opportunity for you to meet and network with others in the industry.

We meet approximately four times a year in Glasgow/Edinburgh to discuss varying issues and also to benchmark activity. The annual membership cost for an IOF member is £20, and £60 for a non-member.
