The Major Donor Special Interest Group are pleased to offer a number of bursaries throughout the year for training and devlopment opportunities. These are intended to support fundraisers for whom Major Donor fundraising forms either the whole, or the majority of their role, and for whom their organisation is unable to provide budget for such opportunities.

New opportunities will be added throughout the year, and will be advertised through our email forum, LinkedIn group, and Twitter. If you have any questions about our bursary programme please contact us at MajorDonor@institute-of-fundraising.org.uk


Current Opportunities:

Fundraising Convention is the largest event for professional fundraisers in Europe. Taking place over three days in July, the event brings together a mix of experience from the charity sector, and engages attendees through multiple sessions per day, within broad themes.

And we have 3 x one day passes which will be awarded to people working in major donor fundraising!

Convention speakers bring a wealth of insight and experience to challenge delegate thinking with an aim to inform, refresh and engage through a programme of talks, workshops and features. Not only do we pack the days with as many learning opportunities as possible, but there are a number of social and evening events available as well.
The event is also attended by the most innovative fundraising partners and suppliers, who exhibit and showcase the latest sector innovations, products and services as well as imparting their valuable knowledge.
