I Wish I’d Thought Of That (IWITOT) 

I Wish I’d Thought Of That (IWITOT) 

The fundraising campaigns that have inspired the sector 


Following the success of the 2018 session, I Wish I’d Thought of That (or IWITOT) returns to IFC in 2019.

Be prepared for a fast-paced inspiration session with nine fundraisers from all walks of life taking to the stage — each with just six minutes to share with you the fundraising idea they wish they had thought of.

Why was it smart? What did it achieve? What does it mean in today’s world?

IWITOT has been a sell-out event in London since 2012, when Open and SOFII came together to showcase fundraising ideas loved by fundraisers themselves.

We’re excited to cast our net wider and hear about fundraising ideas from around the world.
