FSI Fundraising Conference

Posted by Redbourn Business Systems on Tuesday, September 24, 2013 Under: Fundraising


The AvantageNFP Fundraiser Team recently sponsored and exhibited at the FSI Fundraising Conference in London. 

220 small charity delegates got the chance to hear from some amazing speakers. The day was jam packed full of informative sessions, top tips and case studies. The other suppliers exhibiting were Virgin Money Giving and Action Challenge.

AdvantageNFP had a great day meeting some of our existing customers and talked with some new charities about their fundraising CRM database requirements.  Everybody was impressed with the demonstration of the AdvantageNFP Fundraiser database software.

The Foundation for Social Improvement (FSI) support and develop the long term growth and sustainability of the Small Charity Sector.   If you are a not for profit organisation with an annual turnover of less than £1.5 million then you qualify for free services from the FSI. 

The FSI services include free training, conferences, workshops, mentoring and more.  The roadshows take place across the country, so your organisation can access these free services at a location near you.  To find out more visit http://www.thefsi.org

The AdvantageNFP Fundraiser team were so impressed with the FSI and the services they offer, we have signed up to sponsor and exhibit at future roadshows to demonstrate our fundraising software.

Read the feedback from one of our customers who are already members of the FSI.

“Gloucestershire Deaf Association (GDA) has been using AdvantageNFP Fundraiser since 2010 and it has revolutionised how we manage supporter and client data. We can now efficiently monitor donor giving as well as our service user’s interaction with the services we provide. It enables us to gather a story about who we are supporting and who is supporting us.  The text messaging service, which we started using a couple of months ago has made a huge difference in how we are able to communicate with our deaf and hard of hearing clients; they love that they can now get information immediately, meaning they continue to be at the heart of what’s going on at the charity.

Gloucestershire Deaf Association (GDA) has been a member of The FSI since December 2012. To have the resources of The FSI has been invaluable to a charity like ours, who would never be able to access such fundraising and marketing tools otherwise, for example the ‘Great Big Small Charity Draw’ which offers great prizes to encourage our supporters to support GDA in other ways .

I attended my first FSI conference recently and can confidently say that they are a real  draw for being a member and a huge benefit; not only to getting support from experts but also for an opportunity to meet other small charities who you can build up a rapport with to support each other down the line”,  Gemma Sills, Events & Membership Fundraiser, GDA.
