Alan Clayton to headline Small Charity Week fundraising day

Small Charity Week takes place next month, with a day dedicated to fundraising.

Small Charity Week takes place from 13th-18th June, with Fundraising Day on the 16th. The day features a fundraising conference offering over 200 small charities the opportunity to listen to a raft of experts for free.

The headline speaker at the FSI Fundraising Conference 2016 is Alan Clayton from Revolutionise, who will be speaking on donor fundraising and the advantages smaller charities have over bigger ones.

Other speakers on the day include Stephen Mallison CEO from Localgiving, Deborah Adams from Breast Cancer Care, Annette Saunders from Vanquis Bank and a joint talk from Katrina Jones from Epilepsy Society and Dani Chamberlain from Beating Bowel Cancer. Attendance is free for all small charities.

Pauline Broomhead, CEO of the FSI, said:

“All events during Small Charity Week are free so this is a fantastic opportunity for members of small charities to come along, get involved with the initiatives and brush up on their fundraising knowledge.”

Other initiatives taking place on the day include the #GiveMe5 campaign, where Localgiving and the FSI have pledged to double 1,000 £5 online donations. eBay For Charity and the PayPal Giving Fund are also offering small charities the chance to feature on the eBay checkout and ask users to donate, as well as the opportunity to auction off prizes in the Small Charity eBay Auction, which has up to £2,000 of matched funding available.

The full line-up of speakers and their talks on 16th June can be seen on the FSI site:
