This growing organisation works to support women experiencing isolation and loneliness and help develop a sense of belonging to the community.

“We were very impressed with Novela’s application and she scored quite highly with our judging panel,” Fish Director, Bianca Crocker said.

The winner of the 2020 Fish Scholarship is awarded:

  • A place at the Fundraising Institute of Australia’s Fundraising Essentials course
  •  A complimentary 12 months Advanced Membership to the Small Non-Profits Alliance

“As a founder of a small for non-profit, I believe I need to equip myself with a sound understanding of fundraising and be the driver for the fundraising efforts of my organisation,” Novela said.

“I will be able to apply my new skills and knowledge to improve the fundraising activities of our organisation, helping it grow and create larger impact,” she said.

We look forward to seeing how being a Fish Scholar will positively impact Novela and her team at Key Into Australia.
