The Fish Scholarship celebrated its 5th year in 2018 and we are thrilled to announce this year’s winner as Julia Brockhausen of Health Consumers NSW.
Julia has won a place in the Fundraising Institute of Australia’s Fundraising Essentials course. Congratulations Julia!
Health Consumers NSW represents the interests of patients, carers and their families in NSW. They believe in shaping a health system that listens to, respects, partners with and values health consumers
As the organisation’s highly experienced Communications Officer, Julia is perfectly placed to have a significant impact on the organisation’s future funding.
“I have been involved in fundraising but it has never been my main focus. As such, I feel hesitant getting HCNSW fundraising efforts off the ground and started. The scholarship will provide me with the kick and knowledge to get started,” Julia said.
“It would open a third source of income for our charity and this would enable us to provide more training scholarships for patients, their families and carers who want to get involved in changing health in NSW for the better,” she said.
Fish Community Solutions’ Director, Bianca Crocker, is looking forward to seeing the progress and change Julia can affect in her organisation after being awarded the Fish Scholarship.
“The judging panel were very impressed with Julia’s application. I am confident with her 15 years experience in communications behind her, and the training the Fundraising Essentials Course provides, Julia will improve the success of Health Consumers NSW and outcomes for patients, their families and carers in New South Wales,” Ms Crocker said.
