FIA Conference 2018

The Fish Chick recently presented at the 2018 Fundraising Institute’s conference in Sydney as part of the Toolbox track.

Her presentation was a practical session that delved into the key components of a fundraising strategy – a key document that every organisation needs.

The 8am session attracted a room full of eager participants ready to learn and early feedback has been very positive:

I attended your session on at FIA 2018 and wanted to say how much I enjoyed it. There was a lot to take in given the time available but it was choc-full of useful tips and a simple guide, which I plan to use as a framework as I build our own FR strategy.

 

Fundraising strategy is a topic that comes up as you know at every conference (and I have been to a few of them), but your approach really stood out for me as a way to demystify the thinking around this. Your fundraising strategy structure is so simple and practical but is still comprehensive in terms of what needs to be covered. Thank you so much for sharing.

 

It was great to be part of such an inspiring conference this year and big thanks to all involved in organising a fabulous program.

Presenting in Perth

Last week, The Fish Chick was in Perth to present at the Fundraising Institute’s WA Fundraising Forum.

With almost half of all philanthropic income for non-profits coming from individuals, the presentation delved into the importance of caring for our donors. Titled Devoted to your Donors, it focused on cultivation, stewardship and acknowledging those that invest the most in us, to ensure they continue to support into the future.

Sharing some key tips on donor engagement and useful examples, Bianca provided encouragement and inspiration for the room full of enthusiastic fundraisers.

Bianca was delighted to be part of a great learning and networking event and enjoyed hearing about both the achievements and challenges of charities in the west.
