IOF NI sponsors three places at Fundraising Camp Belfast

IOF NI sponsors three places at Fundraising Camp Belfast

The Institute of Fundraising in Northern Ireland is sponsoring three places for IoF members at UK Fundraising’s Fundraising Camp in Belfast on 11th May 2015.

The one-day event is coming to the Northern Ireland for the first time, following 10 outings in England and Scotland. There are plans for two Fundraising Camps in Wales too.

The event, held at the National Trust’s Belmont Tower, offers a refreshing alternative style to traditional fundraising conferences. At Fundraising Camp there are no set speakers or topics: the delegates themselves choose the topics at the beginning of the day and speak and share their fundraising questions, challenges, ideas and experience.

Heritage and environmental focus

The focus of this Fundraising Camp will be on fundraising by heritage and environmental organisations. Our first topic-specific Fundraising Camp was for arts and culture fundraisers in December last year.

Can other fundraisers attend?

Fundraising Camps are informal events and the emphasis is on sharing expertise and advice, which is why they are open to anyone within the fundraising, charity, or social enterprise sector – but also from any other sector. So fundraisers from organisations outside the heritage and environment sectors are welcome, but should not be surprised if the conversations and sessions focus on those two areas.

How to apply

If you are interested in taking up a sponsored place simply send an email to the Institute of Fundraising Northern Ireland and include your name, job title and organisation, IoF membership number and a short line why you would like to attend.

The deadline for applications for one of the three places is 4 May 2015.

Please be aware if you are awarded a place and do not subsequently attend the camp you will be asked to repay the admission fee.

• Bookings are open for Fundraising Camp – Heritage and Environment.

• Mobile fundraising specialists instaGiv, one of the sponsors of this event, are also currently offering one free place at the event in a competition.
