A new course for fundraisers, Pathway to Fundraising Excellence, is open for registrations.

The first intake for 2018/19 is offered in Wellington for 1-2 November (part one) and 30-31 January 2019 (part two).

Pathway to Fundraising Excellence is a locally-designed sector training course, and a forerunner and pathway to the internationally recognised qualification CFRE (which requires the completion of a certain number of educational credits for achievement).

The two part, four day workshop is being offered by Foresee Communications Ltd, a leading fundraising training organisation with 25 years experience in training all levels of fundraisers, in all types of fundraising. Each of the two day, face-to-face workshops will allow time for networking, sharing and questioning.

Course Designer and presenter

Lead presenter and director of Foresee Communications, Heather Newell, MComms, CFRE, FFINZ, has been associated with the delivery and assessment of professional fundraising courses (including the New Zealandising of courses originally written for the Australian market) for the last four years. Heather has now designed this specific course for the New Zealand environment with up to date, relevant, case studies; local resources; and best practice international references.


Pathway to Fundraising Excellence has been expressly designed for the New Zealand context with a focus on:

  • The ethics, philosophy and purpose of sustainable fundraising
  • Relevant legislative issues regarding fundraising
  • Relationship fundraising put into practice
  • The role of boards, management, staff and volunteers in fundraising
  • Creating a fundraising plan
  • The elements and tools of a fundraising plan
  • Evaluating and reporting fundraising activities
  • Management of a fundraising team

Who should attend?

On completing the two, two-day workshops, alumni will have confidence to manage a wide variety of fundraising tools to build relationships with loyal donors and develop strategies for their charity organisations. The workshops will be suitable for entry level fundraisers wishing to develop their career path through to marketing and communication executives wishing to understand more about fundraising theory, tools and techniques. Senior fundraisers will cement their existing knowledge with new case studies, prepare themselves for the CFRE accreditation, develop fresh thinking about their fundraising strategies and network with like-minded colleagues.


Participants can attend either of the two-day workshops as stand-alone courses or attend both. Those registering for both workshops will also complete an external on-line assessment.

Wellington, part one – 1-2 November, 2018, eligible for 14 CFRE education points (if attending all sessions)

Wellington, part two – 30-31 January, 2019
