Fundraising guru and author at Rotorua Funding Expo

Fundraising guru and author speaking at free Rotorua Funding Expo


Rotorua District Council (RDC) is hosting a Rotorua Funding Expo this month and is encouraging representatives from local groups, not-for-profit organisations, schools and sporting groups to attend.

Keynote speaker will be fundraising expert and social entrepreneur Kerri Tilby-Price, author of books The Seriously Good Guide to Fundraising and The Sustainable Funding Planning Guide. She is also editor of Tonic, a quarterly magazine aimed at the not-for-profit sector.

The free expo - Thinking and Working Smarter for 2014 - is a collaboration of the council, Rotorua Energy Charitable Trust, BayTrust, Department of Internal Affairs and Citizens Advice Bureau. It takes place at Rotorua Convention Centre on Tuesday 25 February from 9am to 2.30pm.

RDC community projects officer, Carole Parker, said the expo will include workshops on tips and tools to help grow your group and panel discussions with funding organisations, as well as opportunities for networking.

“People can select two workshops to attend from a topic list that includes social enterprise, managing performance, evaluation, social networking, and working smarter tips,” said Ms Parker.

She said this year’s Rotorua Funding Expo provides a really valuable opportunity for local community groups to get information directly from potential funders, including areas such as funding criteria, priorities and one-on-one advice.

A World Cafe workshop takes place over lunch, providing an open and creative conversation on topics of interest. This session gives participants the chance to share collective knowledge, ideas and insights, and to gain a deeper understanding of the subjects and related issues. Participants will be able submit questions they would like discussed during the World Cafe session through their registration form.

Registration forms for the 2014 Rotorua Funding Expo on 25 February are available from Rotorua District Council by phone on 07 348 4199 by emailing mail@rdc.govt.nz and from the council website www.rdc.govt.nz (under Our City > Community Development).

Registrations close on Tuesday 18 February.

Gordon Campbell: On The Tokenism Of New Zealand's Role Against Islamic State

To date, the Opposition has continued to occupy itself with the marginalia of the issue. E.g. whether Key did or didn’t know whether Barack Obama would be present at the US briefing last week on IS, or whether New Zealand’s military involvement is or isn’t already a fait accompli.

It might be better to tackle the issue, head on. Our contribution against IS will be to send SAS forces to train the Iraqis? That’s like offering trainers to General Custer just as the 7th cavalry reached the Little Big Horn.
