SOFII are delighted to announce our new and exciting partnership with Ask Direct, Ireland’s premier fundraising and direct marketing agency, situated in the heart of Dublin. 

For the past 11 years, Ask Direct has been committed to helping Ireland’s most innovative charities better understand and connect with their donors so they can raise more money to further their fantastic causes.

To celebrate our new partnership, we’re inviting all SOFII subscribers to enter a prize draw to win a FREE ticket to Ask Direct’s Summer School, 24th – 25th August, in Trinity College, Dublin.

Mark Phillips described last year’s Summer School as ‘one of the most exciting fundraising conferences I’ve ever attended.’

This year’s fundraising conference promises to be just as exciting.
