The 2019 Big4 Fundraising conference kicks off in Melbourne this morning, with a record-breaking number of people at the event.

The Big4 Fundraising conference is now underway in Melbourne, with an unprecedented number of fundraising professionals passing through the doors for this year’s event.

The annual conference helps fundraisers to learn best practice techniques for the ‘big four’ areas of fundraising practice. These are major gifts, gifts-in-wills, trusts & foundations and corporate partnerships.

The two-day event will give charities and nonprofits across Australia the insights they need to secure transformative donations, grants and corporate partnerships.

The strong attendance means fundraising executives and professionals will also gain the opportunity to network and forge new connections across the nonprofit sector.

Big4 will also provide a perfect opportunity for nonprofit sector professionals to speak one-on-one with representatives from a host of leading suppliers and consultants.

Sponsors and exhibitors with stands at the conference include AskRIGHT, Precision Fundraising, The Grants Hub, FR&C Fundraising Research & Consulting, IVE-Pareto and OURTel.

The event kicks off with a keynote by Infinity Sponsorship Director Abby Clemence highlighting some of the key trends in corporate partnerships, both internationally and in Australia.

The conference then breaks into two streams, with one focusing on gifts-in-wills and the other on corporate partnerships.

The major gifts sessions include a mix of case studies from the likes of RSPCA Queensland, the Hawthorn Football Club and RFDS Victoria; thought leadership sessions on a range of topics; plus legal insights from Moores’ lawyers Michael Labiris and Rebecca Lambert-Smith.

Meanwhile, the corporate partnership stream features sessions by Cancer Council NSW, Cerebral Palsy Alliance, Christie Centre, Westpac, Infinity Sponsorship, Royal New Zealand Plunket Trust and Kimberly Clark.
