QLD Schedule

Fight or Flight? Tough decisions in the recovery of your peer-to-peer and community fundraising program in 2021

After a challenging 2020, particularly in the peer-to-peer and community fundraising space, we saw many charities fighting to keep their campaigns running (did someone say #pivot?). Some charities made the tough decision to walk away from some of their activities, shifting focus to other areas of fundraising, while others saw the opportunity in COVID and leveraged it to grow their digital fundraising, changing their campaigns now and into the future.

In this session, hear from three leading experts in the industry, Jim Green MFIA (Hear and Say), Katherine Ash MFIA (RFDS) and Katherine Rowe (Mater Foundation), discuss their learnings of what to fight for, when to walk away and why you should continue to have a pivot mindset.
