I Wish I’d Thought of That is coming to the Americas in January 2021.

IWITOT: The Americas. Ten speakers sharing ten ideas that you can borrow and adapt for your organisation in 2021. This is THE event that fundraisers need to get ready for another year of fundraising in a pandemic. Get your ticket today!


What is IWITOT?

IWITOT: The Americas is a unique twist on the usual fundraising conference. Attendees (from veterans to newbies) will be given the opportunity to be inspired as their peers showcase brilliant examples of fundraising.

Each speaker has just seven minutes to champion an innovative and exciting fundraising campaign or concept that they wish they’d thought of themselves. But there is a catch … all speakers must speak enthusiastically about someone else’s idea, not their own. Egos are banned for the day!

This event will be a fun and inspirational session for your whole fundraising department. In addition to our talks, the speakers and campaign owners will be live and online ready to answer your questions. You can even have your say by voting for your favourite IWITOT idea.

The live stream will be hosted via Fundraising Everywhere+ and there is a chat function available for you to connect with us, and your fellow delegates, throughout the live stream. Don’t miss out, get your ticket now.
