Join this 60-minute online seminar to learn how you can advance your fundraising strategies through the use of technology. 

 Traditional fundraising methods no longer resonate with modern audiences, and the recent restrictions posed by COVID-19 have seen fundraising draw close to standstill for many organisations. In order to survive, charities need to become adept at utilising new technologies and bringing their donors on the journey with them. 

 This webinar will open up a discussion on the ways in which charities can stay at the forefront of new technologies and leverage them to drive donations to connect with a new generation of donors. 

Highlighting the importance of investing in innovation and challenging the status quo in order to stay relevant and achieve fundraising goals, Nikki will outline some of the novel ways in which charities can move their fundraising models online. Using new technologies in an innovative way can simplify both the user experience and donation process, which can ultimately increase the bottom line. 

The way we interact is constantly changing, and as a result, so is the way we give. This webinar will aim to inspire outside-of-the-box thinking and outline the successes that doing so can achieve. 

Focus Areas: 

  • Discussing ways in which fundraising models can be moved to online 
  • New ways to increase fundraising revenue digitally 
  • Embedding digital fundraising models into your organisation

Since coming on board, Nikki has pioneered the use of new technologies within the organisation. Cure Cancer was the first charity in Australia to adopt Google Pay and the second to introduce donations via Facebook Giving Cure Cancer. Under Nikki’s leadership, the organisation has seen a 127% increase in new donors and a 161% increase in the number of transactions received.
