PLENARY: Challenges And Opportunities: Trends And Innovations Impacting Fundraising Worldwide

Traditional fundraising tools and channels do not appeal to new generations of philanthropists; costs of recruiting and retaining new donors are at record highs yet new channels are failing to bring in sufficient volumes of quality donors; public trust in the sector cannot be taken for granted; scrutiny and regulation abound; there is a global crisis in hiring talent and fundraising leadership and struggle to compete for positive media attention in 24-7 high-speed news world.

What are the latest tools, currencies, payment tools etc. that are available to fundraisers today such as Facebook, WhatsApp, TikTok, Instagram, digital wallets, crypto and NFTs that we are no were close to maximising their use? How well are we prepared to benefit from artificial intelligence, bots and more…?

COVID-19 and now the war in Ukraine have added completely new challenges for our sector, so how do we adapt, invent, change, and invest for future fundraising success?

Learning outcomes:

  • The wider world is changing faster than the fundraising world, so how do we react, respond and adapt to this NOW?
  • What do donors and philanthropists really want, are we meeting their needs and how can we change this?
  • Are we ready for bots, AI, Bitcoin, the impact of technology, and the 100% digital integrations of fundraising as in China?
  • When was the last time we looked at our PESTEL? What is the impact of the Political, Economic, Social, Technological, Environmental and Legal realities and changes upon fundraising and philanthropy?
  • Getting ready for future major disruptive changes in the global external market.
  • How Covid-19 and disruptive events such as Ukraine have impacted and changed fundraising now and in the future.
