Face-to-Face Fundraising: Best Practices & New Initiatives

Meeting Description:
Face-to-face fundraising has been the single biggest new tool used for recruiting regular committed donors in the world over the last decade. It is now used in over 50 counties in Europe, the Americas, Asia and Australasia. It has enabled local and especially international NGOs and UN agencies to start raising significant funds in markets such as India, Mexico, Thailand and South Korea as “traditional” tools such as direct mail struggled.
This session will take you on a world tour featuring the cutting edge best practice in use of this powerful committed donor recruitment tool, illustrate how it has been successfully integrated with other programs such as telephone, new media, virtual reality, and show how to best retain and develop your F2F recruited donors and the future challenges for F2F fundraising.
