Best Practice Regular Giving

Regular giving has one of the highest ROI’s in fundraising, and 56% of individual donations in Australia come through this channel. We know our donors love it, but if you don’t have child sponsorship, how do you find a great proposition? If you can’t afford face-to-face, how do you grow it? And if you’re managing rejections, cancellations and upgrades in-house, how can you improve your processes. Our speakers will help answer these questions and others you present on the day.

Date: Wednesday 21 September
Time: 12.00 - 2.00pm 
Venue: Mackillop Family Services, 237 Cecil Street, South Melbourne
Price: Member: $40; Staff of Organisation Member: $45; Non-Member: $60
