Jennifer McCrea says that, "It’s time to look at fundraising through a new lens. A Course in Exponential Fundraising redefines fundraising as something that is not only mission critical, but also a powerful vehicle that can fundamentally transform organizations and the people who are involved with them. "

Designed for a select group of nonprofit leaders - from CEOs and chief development officers to board chairmen and directors - this executive program recasts fundraising as a dynamic relationship between organizations and their philanthropic partners that is designed from the start to be co-creative and generative. The curriculum offers new tactics for developing a collaborative, partnership-based approach to fundraising and philanthropy—a strategy that is transformational for nonprofit leaders, their partners, and their entire organizations.

WWF’s global mission is to stop the degradation of the planet’s natural environment and to build a future in which humans live in harmony with nature. WWF-Australia is part of the WWF International Network, the world’s leading, independent conservation organization.

Founded in 1961 we are active in over 100 countries and have close to five million supporters internationally. In Australia and throughout the oceanic region, we work with governments, businesses and communities so that people and nature can thrive within their fair share of the planet’s natural resources.
 
The world is changing fast. Our wildlife and wild places face unprecedented challenges. The result is people yearn more for nature and are connected with each other like never before. While WWF is only one environment conservation organisation, we'll ultimately achieve more by partnering, sharing, empowering communities, forming alliances and building a movement for the environment. Working together is the answer. It is WWF-Australia's goal to bring about this unified voice for nature
