A certified fundraising professional with over 20 years experience in the non-profit sector, Margo Powell comes with an impressive background in fundraising across the arts, health and medical research and higher education sectors. As Philanthropy Manager at QUT she leads a large fundraising team with a goal to raise over $100M for education, research and community programs.

Margo is active in the fundraising community – she enjoys her mentor role with Fundraising Institute of Australia (FIA) and frequently presents to non-profit boards on fundraising and philanthropy. She consults independently to Board Connect and regularly hosts fundraising workshops and master classes. Margo’s wealth of expertise, strong network of elite donors and extensive fundraising skills are helping a number of new and experienced fundraisers establish winning solutions in increasingly complex environments.


As the fundraising landscape becomes increasingly complex, non-profit board members are required more than ever to play a lead role in philanthropic activities. This workshop explores the board’s relationship with fundraising and identifies contemporary methods to equip board members with essential fundraising skills. This event is for Board members, Senior Staff, Fundraising Managers, and Development Managers of non-profit organisations.
