FC Direct is an exclusive, International collective of fundraisers and visual storytellers within the humanitarian and development community.
As a professional hub solely dedicated to the exchange of ideas and strategies associated with growing and maximizing donor engagement, FC Direct is a unique platform to inspire and educate its members.
At FocalChange, we believe that shared knowledge and experiences can be powerfully leveraged to magnify our collective impact on the causes that we care about.
By catalyzing interactions and fostering the flow of ideas among a diverse group of decision-makers, FC Direct aims to bring increased sustainability and stability to the fundraising and communication efforts that so many crucial causes depend on for success.
GO BEYOND NETWORKING
At FC Direct, decision-makers have the opportunity to share their experiences, offer advice, receive feedback, and have access to industry-leading insights in a raw, unfiltered, forward-thinking environment (without all the red-tape).
Powerful storytelling happens when passionate professionals create concepts and strategies that have benefited from both candid critique and thoughtful feedback.
BE A PART OF SOMETHING BIG
This collective is intentionally diverse, ensuring that its members represent organizations both small and large and from all corners of the globe.
Exposure to like-minded professionals outside your market or niche means you will have fresh ideas at your finger tips.
USE THE BEST PLATFORM ON THE WEB
This private community is organized and administered by FocalChange using Slack.com. Channel discussions focus on topics like fundraising, communications, media, and Raiser's Edge NXT.
What to Expect
This is a two-way street. Our members offer advice and feedback as much as they receive it.
What is Off the Table
This is not a place to solicit or offer explicit help with the design, production, or implementation of projects
