Champions of change in the charity and non profit sector

March 13, Te Papa, Wellington

charity symposium 3

In my mind one of the most useful tools that any charity manager should have on their desk is the New Zealand Cause Report – the shape of the charity sector by John McLeod of JBWere.

This report not only analyses our individual charity sectors and how they make up the whole, but it also describes the challenges facing the sector in the future. For charity CEOs, fundraisers and even CFOs, the sector is often misunderstood and underestimated. This report allows those of us who work in this sector to celebrate our contribution to society, dispel the myths and importantly, to benchmark our achievements against the best of the best.

To make the most of this important research, Foresee Communications is bringing together our own New Zealand contributors to discuss, share and suggest solutions to the challenges outlined in the Cause Report.

This one-day event brings together existing champions of change in the sector to discuss and present solutions to the challenges facing charity Chief Executives, leaders and strategic thinkers. Issues such as creative disruption, accountability and transparency, partnerships and volunteering, co-opetition and collaboration, and of course, sustainability and growing philanthropy will be discussed and debated.

If you are looking at reorganisation, strategic planning, fundraising and income generation, creating a culture around philanthropy or worried about your sustainability, then this is the opportunity to share your concerns and find solutions.

Shamal Dass, JBWere,

Sue McCabe, CEO, Philanthropy New Zealand,
