ASF Congratulates 440 NFP Directors
Graham Bradley facilitating the NFP Chairman Course in Sydney, 3 Dec 2012.
They join the growing list of over 1200 ASF Scholars serving the Australian not-for-profit sector. The Perpetual Foundation and the JS Love Trust generously funded the scholarships. This is the second year the scholarship program has run, and has been increased after awarding 325 scholarships in 2011. With the ACNC now in operation and a sharp focus on the governance of NFP organisations, this training is in high demand. ASF received nearly 1200 applications for the program this year.
The demand is there, but the budget isn’t. Research undertaken during the inaugural program found over a quarter of attendee organisations have no budget for training and only 1 in 5 set key performance indicators for their boards. ASF and Perpetual are dedicated to strengthening the NFP sector with training and development scholarship opportunities.
