- 17-20 October 2023
- In person & online
War still rages, our planet still warms, women still stake their lives on the fight for equality, the few still have more than the many. There is only one thing that delivers real change: people power.
The International Fundraising Congress brings the social impact community together for learning, sharing, and inspiration, sparking ideas from unlikely places. IFC is a hub for unparalleled networking and opportunities, featuring amazing speakers, global delegates, and a million new ideas.
The time has come to unite and turn action into impact at IFC 2023. This year’s conference takes place 17-20 October and will once again run both in person in the Netherlands and online. Masterclass delegates will be on site from Tuesday 17 October and the standard and online programmes will begin on Wednesday 18 October.
EXPLORE IFC 2023
Four days of rich and innovation-led learning and sharing, brilliantly curated by the independent IFC Advisory Panel, a group of leading fundraisers from across the globe. IFC 2023 will give you the opportunity to connect with more than 1,200 fundraisers and social impact leaders from over 70 countries, both in person and online.
The IFC is an amazing global community of fundraising professionals, representing nonprofits working in every continent of the globe. The conference had 1,000 delegates and offers high quality production values and advanced content sessions as well as incredible networking opportunities.
I’ve been able to see some of the world’s best speakers, most successful fundraisers – the people who have literally changed the face of how the world responds to some of its challenges.
The sessions were amazing. All of the speakers were excellent, knowledgeable and engaging. Beyond the great sessions I attended, I got the chance to meet and learn from the best fundraising minds from around the world in between sessions over coffees and meals. I even got to meet some of my long-time fundraising heroes. The IFC was easily the five most rewarding days of my professional career.
IFC is that one place where the fundraising community gets together to change the world.
Going to the IFC for the first time was a truly transformational experience for me.
The IFC was one of the most inspirational and energy-infusing fundraising-focused events that I’ve been to.
It’s about the quality of the conversations. IFC is one of those conferences that I absolutely can’t wait for each year!
I always walk away from IFC with a huge amount of inspiration.
I think the IFC is the most important conference anyone in the fundraising world should attend. The sessions, inspirational ideas, forward thinking, and networking opportunities are fantastic.
