Insight in Fundraising group to debate benchmarking

The next meeting of the INSIGHT Special Interest Group of the Institute of Fundraising will debate benchmarking fundraising performance and ask “is it a waste of time, or a crucial aid to good fundraising?”

The debate will take place at Cancer Research UK in London’s Lincoln’s In Fields on 18 March 2008 from 17.30 – 19.30.

The motion that “This house believes that benchmarking fundraising performance is a waste of time and money!” will be proposed by by Nick Mason (Amnesty International), and seconded by Nigel Magson (Talking Numbers).

It will be opposed by John Sauvé-Rodd (Datapreneurs), and seconded by Steven Dodds (DMS).

The debate chairman will be Bertie Bosrédon of Breast Cancer Care.

The event costs £10 for all individual Institute of Fundraising members, £15 for non-member charities or non-profits, and £20 for commercial organisations/suppliers. Refreshments will be included.

To attend, register by with Richard Portchmouth at with full details (including Institute membership number if you have one), and he will invoice you. Payment is by cheque made out to ‘Institute of Fundraising’.
