In the current financial climate, it can be challenging to stay across the latest thinking on fundraising for your organisation, and — if you're a donor — to know where to best place your funds.
This session will give you insights into the world of major donors, major gifts and Private Ancillary Funds from two of Australia's top philanthropy experts.
This event is offered free for member groups or via a donation for non-members.
Presentation: Major Gifts with Erica Myers-Tattersall
'We just need someone with lots of money to write us a big cheque! Or, How to win the hearts and minds of major donors'
Erica Myers-Tattersall from Xponential Fundraising will take you through the motivations behind those who make sizeable and significant donations to their favourite charities and not-for-profits, why they give, who they give to and how you can access those funds. She will also provide some practical advice on how to set up a major gift program for your organisation, enabling you to critically assess your organisation and the role of board in building a culture of philanthropy that is crucial in raising big dollars.
Presentation: Private Ancillary Funds with Andrew Bradley
Finance expert Andrew Bradley offers unique insights into the establishment and management of charitable trusts, including Private Ancillary Funds (PAFs). Andrew will also provide key insights into some of the issues that families face when running their own PAFs.
Limited places are available, so RSVP now to reserve your place. Join us for a fascinating insight into these progressive areas of fundraising, and find out how you can make the most of them for your organisation.

Parliament House, North Terrace, Adelaide, Kaurna Land.
Family friendly event, organised by community and supported by Conservation SA.
South Australia is a place of clever people, strong communities and unique landscapes. The Federal government wants to build a nuclear waste ‘facility’ in SA. Some of this nuclear waste is a hazard for hundreds of years and some for over ten thousand years. Sites in Kimba on the Eyre Peninsular and a site near Hawker in the Flinders Ranges are being pursued.
We continue to say no to a nuclear waste dump in our state.
Join us on 2 December 2017 to send a clear message to our state and federal politicians.
