On October 13-14, 2011, the 5th International Fundraising Conference and 1st Ethical Congress of Fundraising will be held. It is an important event to the circle of non-governmental organisations in the country.
For the first time in Poland so many people equipped with extensive knowledge of fundraising will gather in one place. Over 30 coaches from Poland and abroad were invited to conduct the classes. The most important guest will be Paulette Maehara from the USA – a many years’ standing President and Managing Director of the Association of Fundraising Professionals – world leader of ethical fundraising and organisation management.
The event allows for exchange of experience and learning from fundraisers from the largest non-governmental organisations in Poland and abroad. It promotes professional work of a fundraiser, so that the lack of funds would not hinder the accomplishment of the objectives of foundations, associations or self-government institutions in our country.
The culmination of the two-day Conference and the Congress will be the signing of Polish Declaration of the Fundraising Ethics by the representatives of Polish non-governmental organisations.
