Digital Special Interest Group

Join our new special interest group focused on Marketing, Media and Digital.

In this session, we will discuss:

  • In the new COVID-19 reality, how do we keep our fundraisers and followers engaged in our cause?
  • How do we take our physical events online?
  • How do we cut through and reach our audiences, and convert them into fundraisers/supporters during tough economic times?
  • How do we do all of this and still keep our donations coming in?
  • In memoriam donations have dried up, how do we reignite and digitalise?

This session will be a discussion of these key points – please contribute your ideas and thoughts and share examples of what you have been doing so far in terms of donor engagement and event planning.

Please join us to share your thoughts, experiences and knowledge – the aim is to get to know colleagues working in this specialist area of fundraising.

This is a free session, with attendance restricted to FIA Members and Staff of Organisational Members only.

Date: Wednesday 15 July 2020
Time: 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm ACST

This session will be delivered online. Details on how to access the session will be shared with registered participants.

NT NFP Forum 2020

Due to the impact of COVID-19 we advise that the NT NFP Forum, jointly presented by FIA SA/NT and Volunteering NT, will be postponed after the steering committee completed a Secure NT risk assessment for smaller gatherings. The new date is 13 October 2020 (Masterclass on 14 October) at Harry’s Place. All current registrations for the NT NFP Forum are valid and will be held over to the new date. If you are not able to attend, please email

We are all very committed to bringing this one-day event and masterclass to the Northern Territory and hope to see you in October. Thank you for your understanding.

The 2020 NT Forum has been developed to provide you with a sample of great work undertaken by ‘for purpose’ organisations and fundraisers, with demonstrated experience from the Northern Territory and other states.

A variety of talented speakers will present on a range of subjects that are topical to the ever changing and evolving needs of our sector. In 2020 we have expanded our offering to include two Masterclasses focused upon the digital space. There are limited numbers for both masterclasses.

Sharing inspiration, ideas, passion, information and experiences with your fellow fundraising professionals at the NT Forum is a great way to develop your knowledge and skills while expanding your network.
