Project Everyone is an online festival bringing charities together to share guidance, insights and expertise in the face of the current pandemic
Welcome to Project Everyone.
In the midst of this pandemic, charities throughout the UK are having to make drastic changes to the ways in which they operate and deliver their services. We will only be able to maintain our impact if we work together: sharing experience, insights and encouragement.
Fundraising Everywhere and Salesforce are spearheading the Project Everyone online festival on the 2nd of April. With growing concerns from charities about how to respond in this time of crisis, this virtual conference has been curated to help connect charities and fundraisers, enabling shared learning to support a response with confidence and clarity.
Digital technology provides a lifeline for charity operations in these uncertain times. But many charities are not at the forefront of digital innovation and may require support to continue to deliver services and mitigate the challenges of operating remotely.
Charities will be stretched to the max, delivering the very programs which will keep our very own communities safe and well over the next few months - they need as much help as possible.
This conference aims to support them through the current crisis - offering guidance, insights and the experience of our collective knowledge.
What form will the conference take?
Each session has been hand-selected and curated with COVID-19’s impact on the charity sector as its focus and will be presented online on April 2nd between 12pm - 6pm BST / 7am - 1pm EST.
Sessions are 45 minutes long including live Q&A with the speaker. Two tracks will run consecutively on Fundraising Everywhere’s website, fundraisingeverywhere.com, which attendees can interact and choose from throughout.
The conference will be hosted by Fundraising Everywhere co-founders, Nikki Bell and Simon Scriver.
Attendance is free but attendees must register here.
Attendees can choose between the twelve live sessions on offer and will have access to all recorded content afterwards, plus a bonus video resource library, for as long as the pandemic impacts the sector.
Other charity sector conferences such as Resource Alliance, Institute of Fundraising, and Charity Digital are supporting the project by using their speaker and charity connections to provide individual content.
The live stream will be subtitled in English for live viewers and available in other languages post-event.

Charity Digital will be hosting a session on ‘fighting crisis with content’
Content has never been more important.
With many of us confined to our homes, we look to digital channels for information and entertainment. We’ve been living in an attention economy for years, with charities facing increasing competition from other organisations looking to get their messages to potential supporters. The current crisis has only exacerbated this.
Inboxes and news feeds are dominated by information about COVID-19. Everyday consumers are being inundated with letters from CEOs, service updates and special offers. It’s imperative that charities are able to carry on the amazing work during uncertain times, so, how can you ensure that your message is being heard in a time of heightened content saturation? And what steps can you take to make sure that your messaging strikes an appropriate tone in an unforeseen situation?
Our session will help you to develop a content strategy built for uncertain times: when communication is the most powerful tool that we have at our disposal.
