The New Zealand charities sector is crowded. Discretionary income is decreasing. Donors have become more discretionary. With a sea-change like this affecting donation-reliant organisations, how should small charities respond? This isn’t primarily a question of better fundraising techniques, it is an imperative that we steward the resources of our organisations well so that we can continue to achieve the purposes for which we exist.
This conference brings together people with years of proven experience in helping charitable organisations remain healthy and viable. You will hear from expert consultants and leaders of charities that have nurtured their resources well. It will be a practical conference with opportunities to reflect on the implications of stewardship strategies and good practices and apply them to your charity’s unique purpose.
This conference is a must-attend for anyone involved with nurturing new resources for a charitable organisation: Trustees, CEOs, Financial Controllers, Communications Officers, Administrators, etc.
At this event you can expect to explore:
- Spirituality of Fundraising — reflecting on Biblical precedents.
