Volunteer Applications 2018

Every year, a 60 strong team of volunteers from across the sector offer their services to help make Fundraising Convention happen. The event always benefits greatly from their enthusiasm and commitment and the Institute of Fundraising is now recruiting volunteers for 2018.

What are the rewards?

  • FREE ENTRY to all three days of Convention as well as meals (and accommodation where necessary).
  • The opportunity to attend selected sessions on a range of fundraising topics and issues.
  • Gaining valuable experience in team work and event management.
  • Becoming an integral part of the largest fundraising event in Europe.

PLEASE NOTE: Volunteers are responsible for their own travel arrangements to and from the venue.

What does volunteering involve?

Volunteers will be asked to work on a voluntary basis for three and a half days from Sunday 1st July to Wednesday 4th July 2018. With over 2,500 attendees across the three days, there's a lot to be done both in front of and behind the scenes, and volunteers carry out a number of vital duties in partnership with Institute staff. These include speaker liaison, registration, managing sessions, promoting membership, assisting delegates and much more.

When and how can I apply?
