Yesterday I attended the Relationships Are Everything virtual summit organised by Fundraising Everywhere and Julie Berthoud-Jury. Here are my notes from the excellent sessions I attended. As ever, do click through to read my notes from each.
Here’s Cherian Koshy on decolonising charity fundraising strategy:

And here’s Michelle Shireen Muri and Vu Le on community-centric fundraising:
"We prioritise our relationships with donors ahead of things like justice. We want to be respectful, and thank them but we continue to enable 'charity-washing'"— Richard Sved (@richardsved) October 28, 2020

Followed by an excellent session by Dominique Calixte on fundraising with millennials:
