“Legacies for Healthcare Clown Organizations”
– efhco’s 1st virtual FundraisingXchange 2021

In February 2021 efhco’s first vFx 2021 attracted 19 participants from 12 European countries on the topic of legacies for our healthcare clown organizations – a hot topic with an excellent fundraising potential.  Testamentary donations have seen a steep increase already in recent years, along with aging of our society.  The lockdowns 2020 and the serious pandemic situation around the globe makes many realize their own transience.  Our daily work with and for vulnerable people gives us the experience to reach out to potential donors for their final giving.

Frances, CliniClowns Nederland, a well-known specialist explained in detail how to start, how to develop a successful multiyear strategy. She shared colorful their experiences with insights, data, chances and examples.  The Q&A session following her presentation was peppered with specific questions of the professional fundraisers, excited to exchange their learnings and to enforce their own action taking on legacies.

28th of May till 29th of May

This spring EFHCO (the European Federation of Healthcare Clown Organizations)is organizing a fundraisers exchange in cooperation with Cliniclowns Belgium and we would like to be able to welcome you there as well.


This meeting is a way for fundraisers across European healthcare clown organizations to come together and exchange information on their best practices and different topics in the field of fundraising.



This year we have found a fantastic industrial location in Antwerp, Belgium. PAKT, a true cultural and culinary hotspot. An unique industrial site where a curated mix of creative businesses and entrepreneurs will set their homebase and look for collaboration with their - top-in-class - peers. 


The exchange will consist of a two day program, starting on the 28th of May and ending on the 29th of May. Various topics will be presented and discussed by the participating organizations and invited guest speakers. There are still some open spaces in the agenda for you to present a session on a topic of your choice.


Keep a close eye on your mail as more information is revealed.
