WA Giving Day Panel Breakfast

Have you wanted to run a giving day, but don’t know where to start?

Join us for an intimate breakfast and hear from organisations who have trudged through the trenches, having planned and delivered successful giving days. Hear the speakers’ tips, tricks, and learnings, to give your team insights into what it takes to come out the other side victorious. Even if you’ve hosted a giving day before, this will be your chance to ask those involved in their own giving day, hard hitting questions that aren’t included in their celebration social media posts.

The panel includes a variety of diverse organisations, who each bring a different perspective into running a successful giving day.

WA Specialist Round Table 

The FIA WA Round Table session held in 2021 was a standout success, so we’ve planned another one for WA fundraisers for May 2022.

In this unique setting, you will have the opportunity to hear from West Australian fundraising experts sharing their experience in key fundraising channels including major gifts, gifts in Wills, regular giving, grants, marketing and more. During the course of the evening, you can choose two round table sessions/topics of interest to you.

It will be a fantastic evening of learning and sharing, as well as a chance to network with a diverse group of fundraisers from across WA.  Your registration includes a bite to eat and a complimentary beverage on arrival.

Together we will learn, share and grow. Please join us!
