on Facebook & Fundraising Ireland Awards Update

Whether you’re an internet newbie or if you've got your own Facebook profile up and running already, you may like to join the new Group on Facebook and hook up with like-minded fundraising professionals.

Facebook is an innovative and hugely popular social networking site that helps put people with similar interests in touch with each other. Joining the site is entirely free and can be completed in moments.

While you’re at it you may also like to join up to The Wheel’s new Facebook Group.

Note: you will need to sign-up with Facebook (which is free) and then login in order to join the Group.

Fundraising Ireland Awards Update

In addition to creating a new Fundraising Ireland Awards Group on Facebook, The Wheel is also reminding the Irish fundraising community to get it’s skates on and send in their fundraising award nominations today.

The Fundraising Ireland Awards are the first of their sort in Ireland and are open to both individuals and organisations. Nominations can be made in each of the following three categories:

  1. Fundraiser of the Year
  2. Campaign of the Year
  3. Best Community/Voluntary Fundraiser.

An independent panel of experienced judges will review all eligible nominations during September and the awards will be announced at a special ceremony in Dublin in early October 2008.

The deadline for nominations is 29th August.

You can submit your nominations online at:
