Intelligent Giving to address new PR in Fundraising group

Howard Lake | 20 October 2007 | News

Charity analysis service Intelligent Giving will be presenting at the first full meeting of the Institute of Fundraising’s PR in Fundraising Special Interest Group on 15 November.

Intelligent Giving has acquired a reputation for its independent analysis and often vocal criticism of some charities and fundraising practices. Styling itself “the independent site for the smarter giver” it has published press releases and comments on its blog about what it feels is inefficiency, ineffectiveness or malpractice by fundraising charities.

Its high profile and independent take on the charity sector make it a good candidate to address the inaugural PR in Fundraising special interest group meeting.

The event begins at 3.30 with Intelligent Giving talking for about 40 minutes on their activities and why they feel that PR is their best weapon in influencing charity fundraisers. Group founder and Chair Ian MacQuillin will then invite what he expects to be a lively debate, to be followed by a drinks reception.

The event takes place at the Britannia Street Conference Centre at 27 Britannia Street, London WC1X 9JP (near to Kings Cross station).

The event has been sponsored by Donor Strategy, Fundraising Initiatives, and TurnerPR. It costs £10 for members of the Institute of Fundraising and £20 for non-members. The venue holds a maximum of 50 people.
