Fundraising Conversations is a series of live online interviews with experts, grant-makers and other special guests on all topics related to funding, fundraising and financing change-making initiatives.

We aim to bring you insights that strengthen your organisations and help you launch new projects or boost the existing ones. The live format means that you can join the conversation and directly ask your questions to our guests.

We are glad to announce the launch of Season 1 of Fundraising Conversations!

The interviews will take place every third Wednesday at 12:30pm, starting on 19th Jan 2022.
