Re:Fresh 2019 - Refreshing your fundraising and you

The Institute of Fundraising Yorkshire team are proud to announce tickets to our annual Conference are now on sale!

Our theme for 2019 is Re:Fresh. The last few years have been tough for the sector, but it's time to shake it off and freshen up fundraising and fundraisers! It's time to breathe new life into programmes, time to try some new ideas, improve current ways of doing things and above all, time to promote self-care and resilience so that you can continue to make a difference to the causes that you care about and represent. 
We can guarantee that you won’t want to miss it!


The conference will have a mixture of Power Hour and Bigger Picture sessions, under the following focus areas:

Power Hour - these are practical sessions that will leave delegates with the skills and ideas that they can take back to their day to day fundraising.

  • Refresh Your Programme - case studies of new ideas that WORKED!
  • Refresh Your Basic Skills - new takes on the old basics, bringing the basics up to date!
  • Refresh Yourself - self-care and resilience

Bigger Picture - These are more theoretical sessions that focus on strategic and cultural areas for senior fundraisers and leaders.

  • Refresh Your Fundraising Culture - creating a culture of innovation, transformation, testing and risk taking
  • Refresh Your Leadership Style - new thinking and approaches, self-care and resilience
