All of F&P conferences are focussed on educating those working in the fundraising and philanthropy sector on different aspects of fundraising - to update them on new techniques and to help them be better fundraisers. 'Big 4' focuses on best practice sourcing, securing and nurturing of big donations, grants and funding through the four main funding sources i.e. major gifts, corporate partnerships, bequests and trusts & foundations.
The audience for this conference come from all over Australia and New Zealand and work in all areas of the nonprofit sector including large & small charities, universities and schools, medical research institutes, arts & environmental organisations and consultants and suppliers to the sector. A small industry exhibition is held on the two main days of the conference (Days 2 & 3) with usually 8 -10 industry partners exhibiting.
