Take part in an in-depth training course run by experts in educational and arts fundraising.


Creative Partnerships Australia has partnered with the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) to offer five places at their upcoming major residential training event, the Asia Pacific Institute in Educational Fundraising (APIEF).

This four-day event will be held at Yarra Valley Lodge in Chirnside Park, Victoria from Monday 26 – Thursday 29 September 2022.

Run by experts in educational and arts fundraising, APIEF is an in-depth training event offering interactive sessions covering a diverse range of topics including annual and regular giving, major gifts, bequests and legacies, campaigns, stewardship, ethics, effective prospect tracking, making the case for support and more.

This opportunity is for early-to-mid career arts fundraisers representing an arts organisation with an emerging and/or established fundraising program. Each place at the event is valued at A$4,790.

This opportunity includes:

  • A pass to the four-day training program
  • Three nights’ accommodation at Yarra Valley Lodge (check in 26 September, check out 29 September)
  • Institute materials and meals as indicated in the event schedule.

Any additional transport and accommodation costs will be the responsibility of the participant.

We actively encourage EOIs from all states and territories so we can see equal representation across Australia. We also recommend you visit the APIEF website for the full program and information on presenters, sessions and opportunities.
