Director’s Message

Mark Quigley

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the website.

Right now, we are in the midst of the largest inter-generational transfer of wealth ever seen. In Australia alone more than $60 billion will pass from one generation to another over the coming decades. A lot of this money, maybe even the majority of it, will pass between people in Sydney. It is an exciting time for charities, with help from philanthropists, to significantly affect social change.

This transfer of wealth is already providing opportunities for charities to increase their income generated from fundraising activities and expand their mission. However, not before challenges are addressed and overcome. CEO’s and Board Members of the charities I work with are increasingly seeking from their fundraising managers a greater degree of specialist knowledge and experience in specific areas of fundraising. This is certainly true when it comes to capital fundraising.

I established Social Venture Consultants over a decade ago, because I believed then that when it came to capital campaigns and major gift appeals charities needed strategic advice, experience and training from a specialist with a track record of fundraising success. More than a decade later, I still believe this to be true!
