TRACK • Leadership

Join fundraising leaders to talk differently about overhead

Friday 1 Mar 2024 - 9:25 am to 10:25 am

  • Intermediate (2-7 years experience)
  • Advanced (more than 7 years experience)

Experienced fundraisers: Come one, come all… We’ve started a consortium, and we want you!

In this session fundraising leaders Lisa Allan, Usha Menon, Karl Uhrich and Richenda Vermeulen are going to challenge a rethink. They are going to tackle the importance of overheads and forge a new way of communicating with confidence and consistency about the change our industry makes, not how much we spend making it.

Because only we can exercise our leadership, leverage our brands, personal credibility, and relationships to influence the way the Australian not-for-profits talk about themselves.

In this session the panel will unpack the themes coming out of the Uncharitable movie and the Pay What It Takes report, present findings from recent Australian research (including 100 fundraisers!), share some of the challenges and learnings organisations have had on their journey so far, along with providing you the resources and materials you need to begin talking differently about overheads.

Come to find out what you can be doing to change the practices and perceptions for your organisation and our sector. We want to leave the hour with a group of like-minded leaders empowered with the tools and willingness to make commitments and begin to change the narrative on overheads. Join us!
