Invitation | Scaling Fundraising & Impact with Nonprofit Cloud + AI + Data + Trust

Date: Tuesday 14 May | Time: 8.00 am – 10.30 am AEST

Location: Grand Hyatt, Melbourne VIC 3000

While the rising cost of living creates downward pressure on disposable income and increases competition for vital funds, nonprofits continue to find ways to create advantage for their fundraising activities. The 2023 Pulse on the Nonprofit Sector Report suggests that 43% of organisations in the ANZ region list Fundraising as a top 3 challenge. As organisations seek to refine and improve strategies, the ability to effectively identify, quantify and communicate impact is driving fundraising performance and enabling them to make data informed decisions across their entire business.

FIA CEO Katherine Raskob will be part of a panel at Salesforce’s breakfast event to help leaders better understand their impact, make better decisions, foster a culture of innovation, collaboration and efficiency, and engage and retain their top talent.
Salesforce will reveal its new innovation and discussions will cover, why an outcomes strategy is critical to scale impact and the top trends impacting fundraising.
