Fundraising news, ideas and inspiration for professional charity fundraisers

Online discussion forums for fundraisers

Online discussion forums for fundraisers

Following a discussion on the trust-fundraising discussion group on Yahoo! Groups about other online forums (OK, fora) for fundraisers in the UK, here is a rough and ready collection. I plan to update UK Fundraising’s original list of web/email fora for fundraisers that the site used to list for four or five years until 2002. In the meantime, here is the list. Have we missed anything?
