The Major Donor Special Interest Group are pleased to offer a number of bursaries throughout the year for training and development 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:

The Institute of Fundraising Major Donor Special Interest Group are pleased to offer three one-day bursary places for the upcoming IoF Fundraising Convention.

Fundraising Convention is held annually by the Institute of Fundraising and each year sees thousands of fundraisers gather at the largest professional fundraising event in Europe. It is a place to meet sector leaders, develop skills and knowledge and explore the many exhibitors.

Speakers from across the sector will deliver a rich, diverse and engaging range of workshops, case studies and debates. The programme brings a wealth of insight and experience to challenge delegate thinking with an aim to inform, refresh and engage through talks, workshops and features. Not only are the days packed with as many learning opportunities as possible, but there are plenty of social and evening events available as well.

Date:                    Monday 1 - Wednesday 3 July 2019

Venue:                 The Barbican, London

We have three places to offer, one of which is reserved for a fundraiser based outside of London and the South-East of England (this reserved place will also receive travel expenses of up to £100).

The deadline for applications is 12 noon on Friday 7 June, and the winners will be informed the following week.

Contact majordonor@institute-of-fundraising.org.uk with any queries.
