Building Digital Capacity in the Voluntary & Community Sector
Kevin McCaughan, Freelance Fundraiser
As an experienced fundraiser and graduate of the Ulster University's Advanced Diploma in Sustainable Investment for the Third Sector and Advanced Certificate in Management Practice (Transformational Management in a Digital World), Kevin has a growing appreciation of how the need for digital transformation to sustain income and fundraising operations is essential for charities.
This session will explore the challenges and the capacity needed by the voluntary and community sector in Northern Ireland to fundraise successfully in a world where digital citizens are fast becoming the norm and the digital train has for many charities already left the platform, but how do you get there?
- Challenge 1 – How does an organisation consider digitalisation in a world of growing economic instability?
- Challenge 2 - How do you balance the needs and expectations of a more conservative, traditional donor base with the expectations of modern, digital citizens?
- Challenge 3 - How can you embrace change when your operational capacity and ability to implement digital methods simply doesn’t exist?
This session will be facilitated online. We'll provide instructions and support for participants to get setup.
