I attended a superb conference yesterday. #CharitySoWhite’s Martha Awojobi, in partnership with Fundraising Everywhere, hosted the first ever BAME Fundraising Conference “to provide organisations with the tools, connections and resources to do brilliant fundraising”.
The aim was to provide BAME led-organisations with the practical fundraising tools, connections and knowledge for them to survive through the pandemic, and to bring information on how organisations can support POC fundraisers and provide them with opportunities to thrive in fundraising.
I attended and was inspired by it. My notes are below – click through on the Twitter thread to read them all.
