@Zia Salik Our students did a fantastic job for your 2020 Charity Week. They raised over £2000. Thank you for your adaptability and innovation in supporting them to do this!
Really powerful Zia to hear about the impact of Covid on your team at the busiest time of year and your beneficiaries too, thanks for sharing
Thanks, Zia. Great insight.
Brilliant results Zia - thank you for sharing.
Bravo Zia! Amazing results
Great examples Zia, thank you. Di, Berkshire Health Charity.
Speaking now Robin Peake from Wycliffe UK.
Mark Phillips’ research is essential.
@elina, that’s amazing, Charity week was AMAZINGGGG even in a pandemic we raised more than last yr
thanks all for your kind words
I'm so glad to hear of your huge success this year @Zia Salik, unfortunately last year our students raised £10k during charity week so a lot less than previous. But still a huge achievement and we are proud to support Islamic Relief.
Ed. Google Bluefrog agency.
amazing results!! well done robin
How awesome is that?!
You must ask for support, those needs are not going away.. you will be amazed the support you will receive but you must ask if you don't, your mission misses out!!
We have tried a different approach this year too for our Christmas campaign… instead of a letter we have designed a poem to go with our case studies and our cause
"Supporters will do good if we give them a chance!" -- so true, keep asking!
The playing field has changed and fundraisers must adapt quickly..
Well said, Robin!
Thank you Robin!
Thank you, Robin. Tweeted your quote.
Now speaking is Michelle Hancock, St Margaret’s Hospice
PRINCIPLE 1: IT’S ABOUT THEM, NOT YOU
PRINCIPLE 2: THE MINDSET YOU HAVE REALLY MATTERS
PRINCIPLE 3: YOUR SUPPORTERS STILL BELIEVE IN YOUR MISSION – AND THEY WANT TO GIVE
Amazing Michelle! Such a quick turnaround to launch a campaign
Listening in from Sarah A Reed Childrens Center here in Erie Pa USA www.sarahreed.org

Need to pop off. This has been extremely helpful, thank you to all the speakers and to IOF for organising 👏
Have to scoot to another meeting. Will watch rest later. thank you !
Great personal contact Kevin - we need to do more of that
Just wonderful Kevin. I think I am going to give all my money to the Children's Society!
Kevin,you will be amazed about those donors that are not on the radar screen and their potential to you NPO..personal..personal..personal..
Also need to head off sadly but look forward to catching up with the rest. Thank you
Great to hear Kevin
Lorraine, Saint Francis Hospice
This is so refreshing to hear!
I have to leave too! Thanks very much everyone
Absolutely incredible Kevin
Well done Kevin!
Wow that's amazing Kevin!
Wow! That’s wonderful. Well done.
Wow Kevin! That's brilliant!
one conversation at a time
Amazing work Kevin!
Kevin - amazing thank you
Amazing insights, thanks Kevin
Amazing, really well done Kevin! I’m just starting to pick up the phone more, as a fairly new fundraiser I am still intimidated by it but that has really put it into perspective!
Bravo Kevin! And great speaker!
Donors want to give and are often surprised when they have a conversation that has no 'ask' in it. I work with Major Donors.
I love talking to our supporters - we get so dragged down in bashing out personal emails but a good conversation is one of the great joys of fundraising.
I absolutely agree Claire.
So true Claire.
I think how we speak to our donors is really influenced by whether we genuinely love them, or if "donor love" is a tactic.
Picking up the phone and just asking how someone is is well worththe time & investment.
Keep having those personal conversations they are "the gold of fundraising" and can lead to so much for your mission!!
I agree - phoning supporters is so worth it. I never used to be very confident speaking to supporters either but you just have to let them talk and like Kevin said, let them tell their story. They really do appreciate it
a summer like no other...... 2020 has certainly been that!
We also stayed in touch with all our incredible volunteers too.
Wow, great result Jayne. Like the idea of supporters being able to innovate
this is inspiring Jayne - and I am a regular supporter of the RNLI and love the charity!
Ah this session has really lifted my spirits and I feel so much more positive about the future! Currently looking for a new role after being made redundant and to hear about investment in fundraising teams is really exciting and definitely needed! Its so great to hear how so many charities have been adapting and doing well over this time!
Hayley, so sorry to hear you’ve been made redundant. Stay positive and keep looking for your next adventure!
Agree, sorry to read that Hayley! Hang in there, there are opportunities out there...no doubt the right one is waiting for you.
Jayne it is wonderful to hear you speak. We lost 2 fishermen off our coast last weekend and one fisherman was rescued. Our local RNLI and fishing community were incredible Thank you.
Jayne - inspiring talk! I’ve loved it
Jayne, all the RLNI's comms throughout Covid have been amazing. Lots of professional jealousy
Such a nice thank you idea!
very inspiring Jayne 🥰
Jayne - brilliant talk. RNLI are always incredible to follow.
Amazing presentations. Thank you!
Really inspiring Jayne
Brilliant presentations, thank you everyone
Truly inspirational Jayne - Thank You.
very insightful - thanks for all the presentations
Thank you so much. Really inspiring and so many great ideas.
Agreed Annemarie - really excellent from everyone.
Such a heartwarming and motivational hour! Well done and thank you everyone!
Inspiring & insightful - Thank you to speakers for sharing experiences
Hayley - sorry to hear about current situation. Glad today was inspiring. You can apply for a free ticket to our next event, which is joint event with SOFII: https://ciof.org.uk/events-and-training/network/2020/i-wish-i-had-thought-of-that-supporter-experience
Yes, it's been great and really inspiring. Thank you all!
Thank you all for your positivity and inspiration, I have to pop on to another meeting but really valued this session. Please feel free to connect https://www.linkedin.com/in/vicki-beers-b126b547/
Wonderful stories, thanks all for a truly great session. The time for the supporter experience to move to the centre of our work is now.
Brilliant point Kevin, thanks
Yes, thanks Angela and all of the panelists, very well presented and extremely inspiring, good to know supporters have been so fantastic! Thank you for a very interesting and useful seminar. John, Wood Green
Agreed, thank you to all the panellists. Very interesting content and positive insight. Thank you.
In Community & Events fundraising I think we have all learned quite quickly to be braver about testing and failing and celebrating small victories and successes much more than before.
Can you share what didn’t work? It’s good to share these things too.
Yes, thats also very important!
A recording will be sent out and then it will also be added to the CIOF Youtube channel.
Seems like the #1 thing not working right now is not asking. One of our clients at FYE decided not to ask their major donors for the usual lead gift, and then decided not to ask their donors strongly for support. Guess what? Appeal flopped. Clients being transparent about their need are raising money.
Claire., .The fundraising road to Rome begins with those small steps.. and we must keep moving forward..
Enjoyed todays session ..great job and best to all for a restful Thanksgiving 2020 from the USA...
Thank you all so very much, highly insightful and inspiring session. Go well.
Bravo to all speakers on this webinar, you’ve all been fantastic and I’ve utterly enjoyed listening to each of you
Thank you to all the panellist, I've really enjoyed listening and learning from you, and Iof for organising. It's been really inspiring! (Masoodah Khanam, CRUK)
Seems like donors have been very forgiving of us trying things & maybe not getting everything right, as long as we're transparent and genuine.
Fantastic session! Thank you all for your time and insight
Thank you, Richard and Giles!
hear hear - thank you everyone!
Thank you so much to all speakers and organisers!
