Giving Days

Join us to see how you could raise over $1 million dollar in a day!

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 2019, Day of Giving campaigns were seen from QUT, RBWH, Queensland Ballet, RSPCA QLD and others. Now with the COVID-19 crisis and many events being cancelled, online giving days may be worth considering for your organisation.

Join this session with Sonya Tufnell MFIA, Campaigns Manager at RSPCA QLD, who recently raised $1.6 million in one day.

Sonya will share her experiences in running two matched giving campaigns and will take you through where to start, key success factors, and break down all the elements that make a giving day a success.

Date: Tuesday 7 April 2020
Time: 1.00pm – 2.45pm AEST (12.30pm SA and 11.00am WA)

This session will be delivered online. Details on how to access the session will be shared soon.

Member: $20.00
