Australasian Fundraiser of the Year – New Award
Monday, 16th June 2008 at 12:19 pm
The Fundraising and Philanthropy Australasia Magazine (F&P) has launched a new award recognising excellence in fundraising – the Australasian Fundraiser of the Year.
The award is designed to acknowledge and celebrate fundraisers at the leading edge of the profession – those achieving outstanding results through a combination of smart strategy, great leadership, entrepreneurial spirit, and best practice methodology.
The award is open to fundraisers from large and small Not for Profits across the Australasian region and fundraisers can nominate themselves or a colleague.
An independent board of judges drawn from Australia and the Asia Pacific region will assess nominations.
The winners will receive professional development opportunities including free registrations to the International Fundraising Congress in Amsterdam and the Australasian Fundraising Forum in Sydney.
F&P Editor, Jeremy Bradshaw says the aim of the regional fundraiser award is to help generate pride in the profession and offer a clear benefit in the prizes.
Bradford says while business has leaders that are well recognised, fundraisers in the Not for Profit sector are not so well known.
Nominations for Australasian Fundraiser of the Year close on July 7th, 2008.
