Two weeks ago, the Resource Alliance hosted the 2017 International Fundraising Congress (IFC) in the Netherlands. Our very own Chief Relationship Officer, Greg Albright, packed his bags and traveled across the pond to partake in the 4-day congress that brought fundraisers and change-makers together to collaborate, educate, and innovate with one another on social changes and industry evolutions.
The International Fundraising Congress is bigger than what’s going on and currently trending. It drives fundraisers to globally think outside of the box and start a new conversation. So, what did Greg take away from the event? Here are his key insights:
The Congress provided a memorable experience for the attendees – just like fundraising aims to do for donors by creating lasting experiences and relationships. Our Globetrotter Greg even got groovy at the disco party hosted by the Resource Alliance!
The encounters develop and flourish through these congresses. He is incredibly grateful for the opportunity to merge thinking caps and perspectives together to collaborate and start a new conversation – he can’t wait to see what next year’s Congress brings!
