2021 Best Supporter Experience: Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research

What did winning this award mean for you / your organisation?
“The FIA Awards are brilliant way to enhance the profile of smaller charities like the Perkins.  Submitting an entry allows you to benchmark yourself against some of the best causes and fundraisers in Australia. And when you win for your team’s hard work and innovation, it’s a proud moment and one you’ve well and truly earned.”

Winning for Best Supporter Experience for the MACA Cancer 200 – Ride for Research was made all the sweeter because it reinforced our decision to bring the event in house so we could ensure the best possible, bespoke experience for our loyal and passionate supporters.”

What advice or suggestions can you give to other members considering submitting an awards nomination? Why should they enter?
“My suggestion for anyone wanting to enter these awards is that you don’t need to be a fundraising giant with deep pockets to be competitive. Standing out is about authenticity, transparency and passion for the project you’re proud of.
