The Good Giving Forum, held on the 3rd September 2013, was designed for WA small-medium not for profit organisations.  The forum provided informative and practical presentations from fundraisers, individual donors, foundations and grant-makers.  The aim was to learn about good governance, accountability, and to hear donors tips for making 'the big ask'; to inspire NFP organisations to engage with potential and existing donors to help them understand and support their cause.
