  • Address: St John's Hotel, 651 Warwick Road
This one-day conference for anyone involved in income generation, looks beyond the operational side of fundraising at the strategic issues affecting the sector.

As well as learning from other charities, we’ll be using the energy & passion within our network on the day and after, to tackle the real strategic issues that currently influence hospice fundraising. Using an interactive, collaborative approach, delegates will be invited to bring a current strategic issue to the conference to work on during a very practical session in the afternoon.

This conference will  provoke, stimulate and energise all those who lead fundraising teams, their CEO’s and trustees, making it the 'go to' conference for anyone working in fundraising in the hospice sector.

With workshop sessions on career development from those who have made their way to the top, tips on running successful capital appeals and why engaging with outside organisations on the development of hospice strategy and planning brings more than just financial benefits, there's plenty for everyone. 

To find out more download the draft programme and the workshop information to enable you to choose which two workshops you want to attend at conference.

As a result of attending this conference delegates will have

• understood the Theory of Change and how it can be used to best effect for fundraising
