Developing Your Fundraising Mix Afters

A special thanks to everyone who came to our members’ event on Tuesday, 7 October at NICVA. The event was attended by almost 100 people and provided a unique opportunity to consider diversifying income streams. 

Jenny Irvine, Chief Executive of ARC, Northern Ireland’s first Healthy Living Centre and keynote speaker at the event provided key pointers to developing a route map to success using the Who wants to be a Millionaire analogy:

  • Consider all your options
  • Ask your audiences
  • Phone a friend - Build external relationships
  • 50:50 not many eggs or many basket, but more than one
  • Have confidence in your final answer.

Special workshops delivered by fundraising experts, equipped delegates with knowledge of seven different areas of fundraising. You can view the workshop presentations below. Videos from both the members event and the Fundraising Expo are available at the bottom of this page.
