Why Jolene Molloy recommends the Certificate of Professional Fundraising
In 2017 I was one of the recipients of the FIA Certificate of Fundraising Scholarship. I attended the Melbourne course that was held between October 2017 and December 2017.
I thoroughly enjoyed the course and the course work. Despite being a fundraising professional for 14 years the course still had a lot of information that was new to me. Of particular interest was the digital fundraising as this was the first time, I’d attended a course that had a digital component.
At the time I did the course I was working for Good Shepherd Australia New Zealand and was able to implement much of what I learnt into the fundraising strategy. I was at the time working on a digital strategy which incorporated some of what I learnt. These strategies are still in use today and have seen an increase in fundraising income.
In the two years since the course I have used extensively all that I learnt on the Certificate of Fundraising course.
I wish to thank FIA for this opportunity. The Certificate of Fundraising was something I wanted to do for a long time but neither myself nor the organisations I worked for had the means to achieve this until I received the scholarship.
