 Thursday 21st January

UPF

43 Lancaster Gate, London, W2 3NA

Registration and Refreshments 6:30pm / Event 7:00pm to 8:30pm

  

We would like to introduce you to Realstew: an online sustainable funding method to support your charity or other favourite cause. On the 21st of January we have the special opportunity of having the founder of Realstew, Paddy Delaney, here to explain this to us in person. Fundraising for philanthropic or humanitarian causes is getting ever more difficult. The global economic crisis has seen the “donatable pound in the pocket” shrink. Traditional methods of fundraising have given way to regular giving in the hope that this would enhance the sustainability of such donation. However, even this is under attack from the ongoing effects of the economic crisis.To know more about Realstew please use this link here.
