About this event


Join us for our free 45 minute lunchtime Zoom talk about the impact of Covid-19 on fundraising.


The session will be run by Lou Lai, Manifesto's Transformation Director and Phil Aiston, Digital Content Strategist. They will cover a summary of what we are seeing as the impact on not-for-profit organisations and their fundraising programmes.


We'll share some key insights, plus give you some tips and ideas to help through this difficult time, with dedicated time at the end of the session for any questions.

What to expect


Insights & Trends

What are the changes we are seeing at a macro level? We’ll be sharing data from a range of sources, from organisational feedback to sector press and surveys to highlight affected areas of fundraising.


What opportunities have presented themselves? We’ll share questions your organisation should be asking in order to gain clarity and focus during the changes fundraising is facing.


Through our research we have uncovered a number of helpful insights that we will be sharing during the lunch & learn. It’s important we continue to learn and share experiences.
