Dakin Mayers, together with JBWere, welcomed over 60 CEOs and Board Members to our End of Year CEO Forum, where our guest speaker was Dr Wendy Scaife, Senior Research Fellow, Australian Centre for Philanthropy and Nonprofit Studies - Queensland University of Technology (QUT).

Dr Scaife has worked in, studied and taught philanthropy and fundraising for 25 years.  Her Master's thesis explored corporate support of community causes, and her PhD investigated the marketing and funding of Australian medical research. 

She presented the results and insights from her team's 2013 probe of leadership and fundraising in Australian nonprofits.  This covered what CEOs/Board Members are currently doing to support fundraising/development, their level of engagement, the typical infrastructures they have in place, and key challenges they are experiencing.

Most importantly, she addressed the importance of creating an internal culture of philanthropy in each organisation.

Dakin Mayers was delighted to make a donation to Wendy Scaife's favorite charity - the Puuya Foundation, in appreciation for sharing her time with us so generously.
