Thursday, 1st August 2013 at 9:21 am

Registration for the Fundraising Institute Australia’s professional development program called Madison Down Under (MDU) is closing soon with a special discount for Pro Bono Australia Readers.

The program will take place from 16 – 20 August 2013 at Q Station, Manly, Sydney.
MDU has been developed with the American Association for Healthcare Philanthropy (AHP) and is based on the Madison Program conducted at the University of Wisconsin.

FIA says it’s the only PD program in Australia designed specifically for experienced fundraisers and features Faculty from Australia and overseas, the opportunity to learn in a small-group setting and to exchange real-life experiences with other delegates.

The 2013 program offers 5 tracks:

  • Capital Campaigns & Major Gifts
  • Fundraising Management
  • The Annual Program
  • Bequests and Planned Giving
  • Strategic Marketing for Fundraising

Featured track program Chair this year is Ann Thompson-Haas, a Principal/Senior Consultant with Larkwood Consulting, USA. Thompson-Haas is a widely recognised content expert in annual program strategies, with further expertise in integrated direct response.

She has more than 20 years' experience in all aspects of philanthropy, leadership, and communication.

Nigel Harris, the Executive Director Mater Foundation in Queensland will facilitate the Fundraising Management track.

Harris has been with the Mater for 18 years and has worked in fundraising for 30 years, specialising in the health and disability sectors. Holding an MBA majoring in fundraising as well as qualifications in Public Relations and Marketing, he is also a Certified Fundraising Executive (CFRE), first qualifying for the credential in 1993.

MDU provides:

  • Unique, specialised and results-oriented training for experienced fundraisers.
  • Content that is practical and ready-to-use – implement change straight away.
  • Direct access to specialist faculty – learn from the best international & Australian fundraisers.
  • Learning that is interactive.
  • Opportunity to exchange real-life experiences with other delegates.
  • Limited delegate numbers in each Track to maximise learning and networking.
  • A quality program – developed with America’s Association for Healthcare Philanthropy (AHP) & based on the Madison Program conducted at the University of Wisconsin.

More info is available at here. The Faculty info is under ‘Program & Tracks’.

Places are filling fast and there is limited availability left in some tracks and registrations close next Wednesday 7th August.

Pro Bono Australia readers can receive a 10% discount – a saving of around $300 – on MDU registration by emailing training@fia.org.au and using the promotional code: probono.
