EFA's Fundraising News & Views
Issue 33, December 2018

Welcome to the last edition of Fundraising Europe for 2018 where, on top of our usual news round-up, you'll find features from fundraising experts across the continent.

We hear from Larissa Probst at the German fundraising association (DFRV) about the current challenges facing the market, Richard Radcliffe of Radcliffe Consulting about the 'donor revolution' in legacy fundraising, and Caoileann Appleby from Ask Direct in Ireland, who shares her advice for putting the giving cycle into practice.

It's been a busy year for EFA too as we modernise our certification programme for fundraising qualifications, launch our new look website and, today, release a short report summarising the tax incentives for philanthropy. Read more below.
