Sofii is something very new and very different! It is the brainchild of Ken Burnett, fundraising guru and author of the seminal “Relationship Fundraising”. It is a website dedicated to sharing with fundraisers all over the world, the latest insights, innovative ideas and fundraising activities, that can be used to influence and encourage development of our profession.

It is currently in a very embryonic stage, but with some working pages listing at least 50 or so case studies.

These are the words of the Sofii team themselves about the site:

What is SOFII?
SOFII is The Showcase of Fundraising Innovation and Inspiration. It seeks to provide fundraisers everywhere with a comprehensive, easily accessible archive of the best creative fundraising from around the world.

And it’s free to fundraisers, providing that they are currently working in a nonprofit organisation/charity.

If you’re not working as a fundraiser with a recognised nonprofit or charitable organisation you can still enjoy all the benefits of SOFII membership, but we’ll have to charge you a small fee.

All the information on this site has been compiled to inform, guide and help fundraisers when preparing their own fundraising strategies, campaigns and promotions. In this way SOFII aims to improve fundraising practice everywhere for the benefit of fundraisers, donors and the organisations and causes they all serve.
