Putting supporters back in charge


Published on

Matthew Sherrington delivered this session at the Institute of Fundraising National Convention 2012.

  • Fundraising should of course be about your supporters...their giving, their impact, their choice and preferences. This is illustrated so well in the collection of great fundraising in the presentation - thank you for sharing many examples that I hadn't come across previously. A great presentation.
