'Does my support really make a difference?'
Public anxiety about the way charities spend money expresses a deep underlying concern; people don’t feel they know what their support is really achieving.
While we know the answer is almost always more complex, and more interesting, than a simple figure measuring 'how many pennies in the pound go to the cause', it can be a challenge to gain people's attention for more detailed or nuanced messages about impact and effectiveness.
We'll look at examples of how charities are going beyond an annual report, tucked away as a PDF on the website, or mailed out once a year, to effectively engage supporters with the impact of their work.
We’ll be holding our AGM after the seminar, from 16.50 – 17.10, and we’d love for you to join us for a glass of wine and to hear what CharityComms has achieved in 2015-16 and our plans for the future. Entry is free and there’s no need to book, just stick around after the seminar.
Live broadcast via Periscope
If you're a CharityComms member and you'd like to watch the seminar but can't join us in person, then we'd love for you to join us virtually. Sign up to our private Periscope broadcast now (booking closes at 12pm on Tuesday 26 September).
Please note: in order for us to invite you to watch the live broadcast on the day, we need your Periscope name at least two days before the event (email Robyn by Tuesday 26 September) and for you to be following us: @CharityComms. After this date, we won't be able to invite you to the broadcast.
