Joe Burnett is the contributing editor, and Ken Burnett is a trustee, of Showcase of Fundraising Innovation and Inspiration (SOFII). SOFII “aims to be the most comprehensive, best organised, and most inspiring collection of fundraising related content from around the world.” The site hosts case studies of fundraising from around the world and throughout recorded history.
SOFII hosts the “I Wish I’d Thought of That (IWITOT): The Americas” event on January 26, 2021, and a series of IWITOT events in the past. The showcase features great ideas in fundraising, presented by peers who did not create/participate in the case study. Joe and Ken join host Steve Boland to discuss what is “innovation” in a field that has case studies that are thousands of years old, adapting ideas to fit current times and needs, and much more.
