Arts NT Grants

We’re presenting two workshops in Darwin this November on philanthropic fundraising, developed specifically for NT arts organisations: one for senior executives and staff who undertake fundraising as part of their roles; and one for board members, CEOs and senior executives who are responsible for leadership and organisational strategy.

The workshops will be facilitated by strategic fundraising expert Serhat Abdurazak, who’ll share nearly 30 years’ experience working in development for the not-for-profit sector, including in the NT.

Workshop 2: For chairs, board members and senior executives who provide organisational leadership, strategy and advice.

What you’ll learn:
>The importance of vision and leadership, and how to create fundraising leadership across an organisation
>The roles required of the board, patrons, CEO, executive and staff
>Building a fundraising strategy with a whole-of-organisation approach
>How to best support staff to fundraise
>How to advocate for your organisation in a way that leads to fundraising success
>How best to introduce possible supporters
>The resources and skills required for the board and organization to succeed

We’re also presenting a complementary session for staff and senior executives who have fundraising roles within organisations, from 2pm to 5.00pm on the same day. This workshop will focus on the key elements, processes and systems required to develop and implement a successful, long-term fundraising strategy.

If you’re unsure which workshop is the most appropriate for you to attend, email NT State Manager Gwen Gaff at [email protected] to discuss.
