Transparency is a hot item in fundraising today. It is an ethical principle. In order to gain the trust of our donors and the public in general we give access to our financial data. Fundraisers can use this information.
But how does this work in practice? The Fundraiser Alliance Belgium (FAB) gives you some insight in the data, the principle and what to do with in practical terms. The conference is held on the 20th of September and is the first of the new working season.
