ECF Europe

ECF is a 2-day event for eCampaigners and fundraisers to come together to connect, share, learn.

Most of the agenda is shaped around you, as participants set the topics of the Open Space sessions together. Are you wondering how testing could make your email list work harder, how you can make your campaign target really notice your campaign, or how the latest technology can help you reach new donors? Whatever your questions, the ECF is a fantastic opportunity to answer them, together with skilled practitioners from across Europe.

It’s also a great chance to hear new and exciting ideas that could boost your campaigning and fundraising impact. There will also be two keynote speakers to inspire ideas and discussion.
