Raise Record Breaking Funds in a Day (even during COVID-19)

There has been a rise in Days of Giving across Australia, where major gifts are used as leverage to match donations over 24 hours. In 2020, many events are being cancelled and online Giving Days have become a very real alternative. These campaigns create a sense of urgency, attracting new and engaging existing donors with the opportunity to double or quadruple the value of their donation. They bring together donors, corporate partners, staff and volunteers, to create a significant impact in just one day.

During the height of COVID-19, the Amy Gillett Foundation started the planning for their Inaugural Giving Day. Traditionally their fundraising has relied on events with thousands of cyclists participating, and diversification was a must. Their Giving Day result far surpassed initial objectives (financial and non-financial) and ended up reaching over 400% of target.

Join this session with Dan Kneipp, CEO at the Amy Gillett Foundation, as he shares his experiences running a Giving Day and how it was all done in such a short timeframe. He will also take you through where to start, key success factors, and break down all the elements that make a giving day a success.

Date: Wednesday 30 September 2020
Time: 1.00 pm to 2.00 pm AEST/11.00 am to 12.00 pm WA

How to Stop Your Fundraising Comms Being Hijacked

Have your fundraising materials been hijacked by corporate, academic, program or journalism communications?

One of the biggest requests June Steward gets for help from fundraisers is how to stop their donor communications from being torn apart by corporate comms, marketing teams or program directors/CEO’s who don’t understand fundraising. This session will help identify the problems, break it down and explore ways to meet conflicting interests.
