FICO (Fundraisers in Christian Organisations) – online event looking at how some charities have turned a crisis into an opportunity (10am-11am, Weds 12 May 2021)

As we’re running articles on a couple of grant programmes that reference religion in our daily grant bulletin, namely the TMT Foundation, which will fund religious projects, and the Barbara Ward Children’s Foundation, which doesn’t fund religious charities, we thought it would be appropriate to post details of the following online event, which is open to all but may be of particular interest to churches and Christian organisations that are interested in or actively fundraising.

Many thanks to Dr Clare Jefferis for asking us to circulate information. We’d be grateful if you could share details of this event with anyone in your networks who may be interested in attending.
