Fundraising Awards at International Conference

Frensham Schools wins two fundraising awards at International Conference

Jackie Dalton with Educate Plus' trophies

Head of Frensham Schools, Sarah McGarry, and Director of Philanthropy, Jackie Dalton, recently attended the Educate Plus International Conference in Adelaide.

Educate Plus is the peak body for professional development for staff in schools and universities who are not teachers – the Admissions, Alumni, Marketing and Fundraising teams.

The International Conference is held once every two years and as part of this event, outstanding work done by schools and universities across Australia and New Zealand is acknowledged in the Gala Awards.

There were 90 submissions across a variety of categories, and Frensham Schools was honoured to be the winner in two categories:

  • Fundraising Event: for the launch of Foundation’s newly-formed bequest group, The Winifred West Legacy, in May 2021 at Bendooley’s Stables venue.
  • Best video: for our bequest video, telling the story of Sue and Tony Morrison, and why they decided to make a bequest to Frensham Schools. You can view the video here

Frensham Schools would like to send a huge vote of thanks to our Bequest Committee – Sudi Horsfield, Gillian Storey, David Uther and Anne White – as well as the Foundation Board, for their sage advice in establishing The Winifred West Legacy bequest recognition programme. Find out more about our bequest programme here.
