OSSIG Meeting

Leadership Financial sustainability Risk

Thursday 20 May 2021

Overseas Special Interest Group Meeting (OSSIG)


Cuts to the UK aid budget, Brexit and the impact of Covid-19 continue to create sustainability issues for INGOs, with many organisations having to adapt to survive in a volatile landscape.

Join us for our next Overseas Special Interest Group gathering, a free meeting for international CFG members headquartered in the UK, where you’ll be joined by representatives from Bond, Humentum and CFG to discuss government funding and the impact on the landscape for INGO organisations. 

This interactive one-hour meeting will be a valuable way to hear from leaders on the key funding issues right now and how these are affecting sustainability, and there will also be time to meet and discuss issues with peers from similar organisations.

If you're a CFG member from an international organisation, contact the CFG Membership Team to discuss joining this special interest group.

Who should come along to this event? 

This meeting is free and open to both CFG members and non-members, and will be particularly useful for finance teams and leaders in overseas non-profits headquartered in the UK. View the full programme below.
