When & Where

Anna Shepherd , Zoë Bunter


> Advanced

How does a sense of community and identity prompt us to put our hands in our pockets? Zoë Bunter from the Leprosy Mission and Anna Shepherd from ILGA-Europe present two different perspectives on individual giving. Zoë will explore why people in churches give so generously: What are their motivations? And what can charities learn from the church? Anna in turn will provide insight into the European LGBTI (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and intersex) movement, where many activist groups have started fundraising from individuals for the first time. How have they mobilised their communities to give and to fund raise?
