    2 April 2019, Helsinki
    Brilliant fundraisers are everywhere; recruiting life-long volunteers, winning corporate partnerships and amassing a following of supporters who are engaged and passionate about thee charity they're fundraising for. But how on earth are they doing it?! It can seem impossible with limited resources and time, so how do you even begin? This session will explore the effective and free ways that on-the-ground fundraisers are making the most of their time, and digital tools, to find and keep the supporters who will make the biggest long-term impact for their organisation. We'll be looking at examples of, and practising face to face, written, and personal relationship building habits to help you make a big impact with the next supporter you meet.
