Community & Events Fundraising – From student to graduate to donor…

Andy King: Community & Events Fundraising – From student to graduate to donor…

Andy King is International Events Manager for small charity East African Playgrounds, focused on ensuring children in East Africa can access their right to a childhood using the power of play. Last year, they raised nearly £600,000 from student fundraising, and in this session Andy will share his expertise and advice on how you too can maximise this valuable income stream.

Drawing on his own time as a student fundraiser, he will talk you through how to find student groups to approach, how to package an offer for them, and how to apply relationship fundraising principles to keep them engaged in the long term. Even if you think student fundraising isn’t for you, come along to see how it might work or how you could take the approach forward with other volunteer fundraisers.
