Here at NFP Connect we offer support, connection and education through various events, for those working for and with local charities and not-for-profits.
Our NFP Connect Breakfast is predominantly for not-for-profit employees, owners, leaders and anyone related to the field or interested in the monthly topic.
We also run peer to peer mentoring, coffee catch up and planning workshops throughout the year.
Payroll Giving or Workplace Giving is a way in which businesses can support their employees to give back through regular donations from their pre-tax pay to charities and other not-for-profit organisations.
But is your charity set-up for workplace giving? What if a business wanted to give your organisation are you ready?
For our September breakfast, NFP Connect Founder Grace McLean, will discuss the different ways in which your organisation can benefit from payroll giving and the various platforms now available to support your cause.
About the speaker: NFP Connect founder Grace McLean worked for over 10 years as a fundraiser for three major Australian charities (CanTeen, Leukaemia Foundation and Royal Institute for Deaf and Blind Children) before starting NFP Connect in 2014. Her roles were to establish the regional fundraising arm for the charities and build relationships with the local community with a focus on Corporate Giving.
Now through the NFP Connect Community Impact Program, Grace works with business to help them establish who and how they give back to charities and works with Charities to prepare them to work better with businesses. Grace has worked with building companies, Newcastle City Council and AECOM in helping them develop their community giving program.
In 2017, Grace established what is now knows as the Hunter Corporate Collaborative – which brought seven local corporates and funders together that donated over $112500 to two local charities for long term impact towards drought relief.
Grace has been named Lake Macquarie Young Business Person of the Year 2014, Lake Macquarie Citizen of the Year 2015 and Local Woman of the Year 2016.
