PLENARY: Fundraiser’s Burnout: Who’s Serving Whom?

Fundraisers are constantly under pressure to meet unreasonable income targets, work long hours with crazy deadlines, and tight budgets, face greater challenges to recruit and keep donors happy, deal with workplace toxicity, and even be subject to inappropriate behaviour from colleagues/donors. The pandemic brought a lot of attention to mental well-being, yet expectations of fundraisers have remained the same. Who is looking after whom? How can the sector effectively improve its culture to prevent burnout?

Learning outcomes:

  • Recognise this major problem in the sector;
  • Understand what burnout is and how it manifests itself;
  • Be inspired by actions taken in organisations to prevent staff burnout and foster a healthier organisational culture.

Who should attend:

  • All participants, especially not-for-profit leaders.

Suggested level of audience:

  • Beginners.
