Executive Fundraising Leadership


Achieving impact through fundraising won’t be accomplished by just being competent in fundraising practice. The reality is that so many well-structured fundraising efforts are frustrated and even blocked by organisational issues.

As a fundraising manager you need to be more than a fundraiser – much, much more. Fundraising management, leadership and organisational development are all essential capabilities if you are truly going to influence fundraising results.

With Nigel Harris FFIA CFRE, the Executive Director of the Mater Foundation in Brisbane and myself, the Fundraising Institute of Australia is providing a one day intensive course for senior fundraisers.

Nigel has been with the Mater for nearly 20 years, the most part of a 30 year career specialising in the health and disability sectors. I’ve known Nigel for most of his fundraising career and he is arguably leading the best structured and most successful fundraising development office in the Australian health sector.

Between the two of us we’ll be looking at the roles of  fundraising managers and leaders, how to understand organisations and people, management models and managing teams, and what planning, reporting and accountabilities we face as professional fundraisers.
