Australasian Fundraising Forum 2008 – Advertorial
Monday, 16th June 2008 at 12:09 pm
The newest professional development event for fundraisers in 2008 promises to be one of the most relevant and exciting with emerging areas of fundraising practice presented by experts from leading Not for Profits.
"Integration" will be one of four key themes explored at the Australasian Fundraising Forum, which is being presented by Fundraising and Philanthropy Australasia Magazine (F&P) in Sydney on August 28 and 29. The other three themes will be online marketing/fundraising, donor acquisition and donor retention.
The Editor of Fundraising and Philanthropy Australasia, Jeremy Bradshaw, says integration is a word on many fundraisers’ lips at the moment, and it’s an area fast escalating as one of the most challenging but also potentially most rewarding.
"Being able to successfully blend the many different communications channels to create appeals, campaigns, advocacy programs and special event marketing with the greatest impact is a growing issue," he said.
One of the keynote speakers at the Forum will be Tim Hunter, Deputy Director of the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC), the UK’s highest profile children’s charity. This year NSPCC will raise £125 million from its one million supporters.
On the world stage Hunter is an acknowledged leader in the field of integration, and he will highlight the lessons learned from NSPCC’s integrated Full Stop campaign which raised many millions of pounds. Hunter is also a pioneer and leading exponent of donor retention strategies, another topic that he will present at the Forum.
One of the strengths of the Forum will be the emphasis on case studies of actual fundraising campaigns and programs. So stats, numbers and results will be featured.
Forum presenters are practitioners from some of the region’s most successful and savvy nonprofits such as World Vision, Greenpeace, Movember and Christian Blind Mission.
