Support for fundraising congress

October 28, 2011

Appco Group Support recently sponsored one of the biggest fundraising conferences on the international calendar.

The International Fundraising Congress held in the Netherlands, October 18-21, attracted about 1,000 delegates from 60 countries around the world, and Appco Group Support not only showcased itself with an exhibition stand at the event, it also sponsored the T-shirts worn by the event's 50 volunteers.

Appco Group Support is the world's largest donor acquisition agency so it was an honour for the General Manager of Appco Group Support UK, Ben Oliver, to be a guest speaker at one of the event's Masterclasses.

The focus of this year's congress was very much on digital media and the need for not-for-profit organisations and charities to adopt and embrace it.

Mr Oliver said: "The event was a great success and it was a great opportunity for Appco Group Support to network, with many different charities approaching the group with an interest in working together and building better relationships and partnerships."

"Appco Group is looking forward to participating in next year's event," he added.
