Bianca Crocker speaks at 2019 Australian Camps Association conference

The Fish Chick at Australian Camps Association Conference

If you’re on the Sunshine Coast later this month, Bianca will be speaking at the 2019 Australian Camps Association Conference.

‘Telling Our Story’ is the theme for the event, being held on 27 and 28 June, and The Fish Chick will be presenting on story telling for donors.

Telling your story to a potential funder is no less important than sharing it with supporters or the community, but sometimes it can be trickier as questions can be complex and word limits are tight.

As someone who has extensive experience working with small organisations, Bianca’s presentation will be informative and provide effective tools to writing better grants, learn where to access them and understanding the philanthropic grant environment in Australia.

You can find out more about the conference here.

Turning a New #GivingTuesday Donor into a Lifetime Donor

Many millennials prefer to make their payments on a monthly basis, so how you can you engage younger donors on a day like #GivingTuesday and beyond?

npENGAGE has featured a fantastic article on how to turn a single-time donor from a day like #GivingTuesday into a lifetime donor.

It’s just more feasible for me to give $20 monthly than it is to make a one-time $200 donation. Yes, you read that right! Understanding a situation like mine is crucial to running a successful sustainer giving program.

One organization broke the cycle. After I made my first gift, our relationship flourished. I’m now a proud lifetime supporter. Why? They followed a strategy I like to call the “Vowel Method.”
