A record number of Australian fundraisers are set to attend the Big4 Fundraising conference this year, with two weeks still to go before the landmark annual event.

More than 270 fundraisers and executives from across the country are set to attend the 2019 Big4 Fundraising conference, with the event still weeks away.

The record number of attendees for Big4 in 2019 comes as a growing number of fundraising organisations seek to integrate best-practice techniques to secure large donations, grants and corporate partnerships.

The annual event is Australia’s leading fundraising conference for fundraisers and organisations seeking to secure large, transformational donations through the ‘big four’ areas of fundraising practice. These are major gifts, gifts-in-wills, trusts & foundations and corporate partnerships.

In 2019, the conference is being held in Melbourne across two days beginning Wednesday 23 October. The event will be held across the road from the MCG, at the Pullman Melbourne on the Park.

With such strong interest in the conference this year, fundraising professionals wishing to attend Big4 this year are being urged to register now to secure their spot at the event.

Fundraising case studies and thought leadership

Gifts-in-wills sessions at the conference will cover how to use digital channels to build a prospect pipeline, best practice phone programs, as well as the tactics RSPCA Queensland used to build its program.

At Big4, the Royal Flying Doctor Service Victoria share how it implemented structured stewardship in its gifts-in-wills program. Hawthorn Football Club Board Member and Scotch College Director of Development Tim Shearer will share insights from the two iconic Victorian institutions. Additionally, two specialists from law practice Moore’s will discuss legal and governance issues in the gifts-in-wills.

Attendees will gain new insights around building and maintaining their corporate partnerships. The highlights include case studies from Plunket and Huggies; Christie Centre and Westpac; Cancer Council NSW; as well as Cerebral Palsy Alliance. Delegates will also learn how to successfully adapt to the changing corporate partnership environment and build a successful go-to-market strategy.
