Fundraising for Sport for Development - Part 3

We are delighted to announce the speakers for Part 3 of the Fundraising for Sport for Development series – The External View – on the 23rd of September 2021 at 1pm BST! In this last event, we will turn our attention outside of the sector to learn which fundraising activities have proven successful for charities and non-profits elsewhere and examine how they might support sport for development organisations in the future.

In Part 1, we were joined by four of the leading voices in global sport for development to discuss the state of fundraising in the sector and the challenges faced in 2021. In Part 2, we spoke to representatives from some of the world’s most innovative delivery organisations to hear how they tackled fundraising challenges presented by the pandemic.

In this third and final instalment, we will be joined by three leading fundraisers from charities around the world, exploring areas including events, digital and innovation, major donor fundraising and several others.

· Craig Fordham, Director of Operations and Legacies at Macmillan Cancer Support – Craig is responsible for delivering Macmillan’s globally-renowned fundraising and marketing strategy and driving performance and ambition.

· Pradnya Haldipur, Vice President of Development at and former Executive Director of Magic Bus USA. During her career, Pradnya has raised more than $145M to support research, capital projects, endowment, operations, and programmatic projects.

· Katie Simmons, Director of Fundraising Strategy at the British Red Cross - Katie is responsible for developing an ambitious transformation programme for fundraising and supporter engagement at British Red Cross, alongside leading on fundraising innovation, supporter experience and planning and performance.

During the event we will also launch the 2021 edition of the annual Fundraising in Sport for Development survey, used to benchmark fundraising performance across the sector, analyse the impact of Covid-19 on income, and inform the future of fundraising in the sport for development sector globally.
