Digital Transformations in Fundraising

Digital Transformations in Fundraising

Transform your charity by doing more with less!

Course level: Intermediate

Digital transformation has the potential to transform charities, enabling them to do more with less. It can turn the disruptive challenges of an aging donor base into an opportunity to engage with new donors more closely: it can also provide fundraisers with a connected view of real-time data and information. It requires charities to be open to rethinking the way they operate and the benefits are clear – improved productivity, a recharging of intelligence across the organisation and a charity ready to be reshaped for change with an ecosystem of innovation and integrated technology for future success.
