What are Fundraising Conversations?
Fundraising Conversations is a series of live online interviews with grant-makers, experts and other special guests on all topics related to funding, fundraising and financing change-making initiatives.
The live format means that you can join the conversations and directly ask your questions to our guests. We aim to bring you insights that strengthen your organisation and help you launch new projects or boost the existing ones.
