Focus on Fundraising – Just Ask Them for Money!
Monday, 9th October 2000 at 12:10 pm

You’ve probably heard the scenarios before…
’We want you to get them to donate but don’t spend any money doing it!’
‘Just ask them for money!’
‘We’ve put you in charge of fundraising too!’

Many people who are new to the Not for Profit sector are often thrown in at the deep end and find themselves in charge of fundraising without any prior experience.

So the FIA, with sponsorship from Pro Bono Australia, has come up with a nuts and bolts approach to setting up and developing a donor program.

The workshop is called Focus On Fundraising and is designed to provide a blueprint for anyone starting a donor program, inheriting a donor program or developing an existing one.

Workshop Coordinator, Jeremy Maxwell from the Epilepsy Foundation of Victoria says the current skills training offered by the FIA by it’s nature adds to the existing knowledge of people in the sector.

He says the FIA’s Focus on Fundraising is for newcomers to get a grounding in core-skills across the sector and includes a special session on Internet fundraising.

The first workshop is scheduled to take place in Melbourne on 1st November 2000 at a cost of $65 for members and $80 for non members (inc GST).

For more info e-mail Jeremy Maxwell at jmaxwell@epilepsy.asn.au or call (03) 9805 9111.

Or e-mail us at probono@probonoaustralia.com.au and we’ll get a registration form to you.
