1st International F2F Fundraising Congress 2023

We thank all speakers, partners and attendees!


We created the International F2F Fundraising Congress to provide a global platform for learning, skill sharing and innovation in face-to-face fundraising. Our aim is to help develop, professionalise and address shared challenges of face-to-face fundraising – still the primary source of new donors worldwide – by bringing together expert speakers to host interactive, outcome-driven sessions.

We are thrilled to be bringing together the global community for the International F2F Fundraising Congress in Vienna. For the first time, face-to-face fundraisers from around the world will meet in-person to share experiences and discuss the future of this vital fundraising method!

Günther Lutschinger, Host of the International F2F Fundraising Congress and CEO of Fundraising Association Austria, on LinkedIn:

“Face-to-face fundraising – “F2F” for short – is still the primary source of new charity donors worldwide. In this blog, Günther Lutschinger, CEO of Fundraising Association Austria, explains why he’s thrilled to be hosting the first-ever global event dedicated exclusively to F2F in Vienna this summer, where he will be joined by expert speakers from international NGOs including Oxfam, UNICEF, Amnesty International and Save the Children.”


Daniel McDonnell: Time for charities to focus on long-term fundraising

In this article, Daniel McDonnell, UNICEF Face-to-face specialist, discusses the need for charities to shift their focus towards achieving sustainable revenue and increasing the lifetime value of a face-to-face recruited donor. He explains how UNICEF has launched a new strategy that prioritizes supporter lifetime value and quality-focused key performance indicators, and outlines the changes made across the whole process to improve the donor experience and break down silos.

You will have the chance to be inspired by the most successful recruiting programmes and learn about the future challenges in recruiting young people as dialoguers.
