We’d like to change, but how…?

In the last week Fundraising Partners started a conversation about the opportunity we have to change face to face fundraising for the better in Australia and New Zealand. More than 40 people from across fundraising have already joined in the conversation, including those from charities, agencies and consultancies. There seems to be general agreement that something needs to change, and a range of suggestions for how this might be achieved.

F2F 2.0 - an opportunity for transformation

We at Fundraising Partners believe there is a rare opportunity to transform the landscape of face to face fundraising (F2F) in Australia and New Zealand. With all F2F fundraising currently on hold, we have the chance to reflect, reconsider and re-imagine. We believe there is a better way forward for F2F fundraising, and we call this ‘F2F 2.0’. In the world of F2F 2.0, charities: Invest budget in F2F activity that is positive for donors and beneficiaries and is both representative of the organisation’s values and financially sustainable. Only invest in F2F fundraising they are confident will be conducted properly. Otherwise, they will invest their budget in an alternative form of fundraising.
