Competition offers half-price entry to International Fundraising Congress 2011

The is offering fundraisers the chance to win a half-price place at its (IFC) in The Netherlands in October 2011. To win the prizes, each worth more than £1,000, fundraisers simply have to answer questions in an online quiz.

Based on the topics of the Great Debates taking place at the IFC, the competition questions ask fundraisers about whether we should be raising money for disasters in rich economies and about their experiences of working in organisations with different structures, looking at the roles of HQ and national/chapter offices in large NGOs.

The Resource Alliance will be using the answers to help shape the IFC programme.

The IFC takes place from 18 to 21 October, and speakers this year include Dan Pallotta, Per Stenbeck and Bernard Ross.

One prize will be awarded to the best entry for each question, giving fundraisers two chances to win a prize.

Neelam Makhijani, Chief Executive of the Resource Alliance, said: “We’ve deliberately left the questions open to allow people to argue their case and share their experiences, and look forward to seeing what the fundraising community has to say about these incredibly important issues”.
