Need to Invest in Young Fundraising
Thursday, 4th December 2014 at 9:36 am

Fundraising peak body Fundraising Institute Australia has re-vamped its annual Young Fundraiser award to try to address issues of high turnover of fundraising staff and a lack of ongoing training.

The FIA says it has teamed up with sector consultancy Robejohn to create more learning, development and networking opportunities, and greater recognition of the winners.

The national winner will receive an all-expenses-paid scholarship to attend the 2015 AFP Conference in Baltimore, USA, as well as the opportunity to undertake further FIA professional development courses and to speak at key FIA events throughout the year.

Each state winner will receive a scholarship to attend the 2015 FIA Conference in Brisbane in February and the Gala Awards Dinner. The scholarship includes airfares and two nights’ accommodation.

“FIA is pleased to further develop the Young Fundraiser of the Year Award as a way of recognising, motivating and keeping talent in the sector,” Rob Edwards, Chief Executive Officer of FIA said.

“I believe it is critical that we develop and retain our skilled and enthusiastic young fundraisers.

“Previous winners have noted the impact of winning this Award has had on them both personally and professionally. Winners cite their increased sense of confidence, passion for fundraising and the encouragement the Award gives them to strive to do more.”

Robejohn said it had invested in the Young Fundraiser of the Year Award for the next three years.

“Robejohn believes it is the responsibility of experienced fundraising practitioners to help identify and invest in the sector’s up-and-coming leaders,” Managing Partner at Robejohn, Kathy John, said.

“The Young Fundraiser of the Year Award provides an important vehicle for finding and acknowledging outstanding young fundraisers and encouraging them to continue in their fundraising career.”
