About the Event: QLD - Eating Culture for Breakfast – The 2018 FIA/ACPNS Alumni (Interactive) Anniversary Breakfast

'Culture eats strategy for breakfast' is a quote often attributed to Peter Drucker. Using real-life examples, we'll be uncovering the whys and hows of creating a powerful internal culture of giving that will set your mission up for success.

Attend to hear a panel of experts who will discuss the power of creating an internal philanthropic culture; provide indicators of success; and explore how you can use this culture to enhance your fundraising results and improve your organisation's sustainability. Hear how one organisation is purposefully building an internal culture of giving and the effect it's having both inside and outside the organisation. Gain insights and practical take-aways about how to nurture an organisation-wide philanthropic culture that improves employee engagement and helps you fulfill your mission.

If you are a CEO, Board member or fundraiser who wants to kick-start a powerful change to your nonprofit's culture, you won't want to miss this event.

Adam Ruble
Development Coordinator, Annual Giving

In his previous role as Assistant Director of Outreach at Knox College in Illinois, Adam was part of a small team that developed Knox’s first Giving Day. This success, with Knox surpassing its 2,000 donor goal, made it evident to Adam that Giving Days engage donors that have been impossible to reach. At QUT, Adam used this experience to inform the plan for QUT’s inaugural Giving Day. This campaign far exceeded the original goal of 500 donors, actually quadrupling this original benchmark, and securing more than $1.6M for vital QUT programs. Adam has now moved into a new role as Development Coordinator, Annual Giving.

Adam came to Australia through the CASE Graduate Trainee Program and has benefited from mentorship and training as a member of the inaugural cohort. He credits his passion for higher education fundraising to his undergraduate experience and the many scholarships that he received to make his education possible. Adam has experience in student affairs, employee management, communication, and TESOL education.
