SOFII presents: World-Changers at Work

Yes, you can make a difference

Welcome to SOFII’s WoW! project, the world-changers at work. We like to think fundraising is about making a difference in the world, but is that always the case for every fundraiser? How do we empower people working in fundraising to transcend the idea of just ‘doing the job’ and inspire them to flourish, to really make a difference where it will matter most? Is it even desirable, or should fundraising just be about who can raise the most money? Are there lessons we can learn from the corporate sector?

The WoW! project will explore these questions and more, bringing you the voices of experts from both the voluntary sector and beyond but also from individual fundraisers and people starting out in the sector who feel they want to make the world a better place from their workplace. We’ll look at examples of companies and charities who do things differently, and offer our readers a chance to share their own experiences as well. How are you going to change the world?
