After examining the current donor landscape and supporter trends, this masterclass will work with participants to go through each of the essential organisational readiness strategies that must be in place to ensure growth and sustainability.


What do your stakeholders expect? From strong governance and performance management, to monitoring and evaluation frameworks and outcomes reporting, delegates will work through a series of check lists, processes and systems to self-score where your nonprofit is flourishing and where you need to focus your attention to evolve into a sustainable NFP that is best placed to achieve your mission and build stronger communities.


The masterclass will cover:

  1. Donor trends – a brief overview of giving in Australia

  2. Strong governance frameworks – embedding strategy and performance measurement from the top down

  3. Essential operational systems and frameworks

  4. Program planning including monitoring and evaluation frameworks

  5. Demonstrating impact


Participants will be given a pre-masterclass check list to self-score your NFP's current funding readiness; essentially a funding health check. At the conclusion, you will re-score, giving yourself a measure of where you need to invest most resources to continue evolving and meeting community demand for your services.
