The Fish Chick was recently featured on FulFilled – a website designed to inspire fundraisers, created by Jake Thornton.
“Fundraising is something that I can do – I can use the skills that I have – the writing, the communication, the strategising, to make a difference and I think that is what inspires me to keep doing better things.”

It’s been a sombre start to the year.
The end of January is here and for many Australians it’s been a difficult start to the year. With bushfires still present in many parts of the country, we continue to see images of despair and sadness. However, among the tragedy is hope – with so many stories of huge fundraising success, generous donations globally, personal sacrifice from volunteer firefighters and much more.
Amongst all the tragedy and loss, we can see true humanity in action which is quite humbling. After all, that’s why we’re all in this non-profit world, isn’t it? To see and create change? Here’s to a 2020 full of more generosity and positive change.
Also this month, as we do each January, we celebrate the 9th birthday of Fish Community Solutions. In lieu of a celebration this year, we will be marking this anniversary by making a donation to the bushfire relief.
Last month The Fish Chick presented a keynote at the Central Coast NFP Forum, hosted by Fortunity.
The team at Fortunity have very generously shared the full presentation on donor relationships and fundraising.
