FREE Webinar on Fundraising: 20 April 2021

Our Community in association with Catherine Brooks will be offering the “Big Rethink”, a free webinar to inspire and guide not-for-profit organisations through this year’s fundraising season.

Each June, the not-for-profit sector experiences a huge spike in donations. After the major disruption of 2020, it’s important not to miss out on this fundraising peak in 2021. This webinar will help you to rethink your fundraising strategy following COVID-19, in time for your end-of-financial year push.

The webinar will cover the following topics:

  • Be inspired by strategic thinker, Catherine Brooks, as she takes us through a step-by-step approach to reinvigorating your strategic fundraising approach
  • Learn how to assess your fundraising assets to determine your organisation’s focus points for 2021
  • Discover new ways to approach your priority markets to maximise funding opportunities by applying principles outlined in the Big Rethink report (Oct 2020). From responding to shifts in donor interests through to growing your digital capacity, reflect on the new fundraising landscape
  • Be informed on the latest key research findings from Australia about the impact COVID-19 has had on fundraising and what organisations need to do in this post-pandemic world

Time: 1pm to 2pm AEST, Tuesday 20 April.

Cost: Free!


FREE WEBINAR: Good Governance in Rural and Regional Areas, 29 April 2021

Training programs for rural and regional community group boards too often are city-centric, and many of the lessons aren’t applicable to the unique circumstances facing them.

Our Community has teamed up with the Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal (FRRR) for a special webinar focused on the issues important to rural and regional not-for-profit organisations.

WEBINAR: Good Governance in Rural and Regional Areas

This webinar will cover:

·  Finding funding

·  Recruiting new members and volunteers

·  Getting help from peak bodies and community leaders

·  Conflicts of interest, and how to approach them

About FRRR: FRRR is a not-for-profit organisation which connects common purposes and funding from government, business and philanthropy with the genuine local needs of rural people and places. FRRR is helping to create a vibrant, resilient and revitalised remote, rural and regional Australia.

Time: 1pm to 2pm AEST, Thursday 29 April.

Cost: Free!
