I teamed up with another Brisbane mum, Helen Creswick, who had a basic website, and we launched the Fundraising Directory, a free print and online resource for the community paid for through advertising. Advertisers instantly understood the product and the feedback form schools/clubs was overwhelmingly positive.
Published by Bible Society Australia, Eternity is a nation newspaper for Australian Christians. Eternity Newspaper started in 2009 as a monthly newspaper distributed to churches around the country.
To make fundraising easier, Ms Stevens has teamed with Ms Creswick to create the Fundraising Directory, a book of all fundraising services and products that will be sent to every school, kindergarten and childcare centre as well as sporting clubs and charities.
Fundraising in Australia for school and clubs is becoming increasingly professional and well organised. The old-style home bakes and craft stalls are now being challenged by gala events, branded products and slick sponsorship proposals. Mandy Stevens, Managing Director of Direct Publications Pty Ltd explains.
Today's volunteers are 'time poor' and wont to acquire information efficiently and thanks to the innovation of two Brisbane mothers the solution is at hand. Fundraising Directory 2007 is an annual guide to fundraising, fetes and special events, provided free of charge to schools, childcare centres, community and sporting groups as well as church and charity organisations.
