Major gift success alongside exceptional annual revenue growth.
From 2015 to 2017, DGB consulted to Orygen – the National Centre of Excellence in Youth Mental Health – and helped set up a small team that grew annual fundraising income from $360,000 per annum to over $3million annually in just two and-a-half years.
Orygen employed a Fundraising Director who was supported to fulfil the task of raising $8million for a new building - the Orygen Centre. There were significant challenges to overcome. The fundraising program was tiny ($360,000 a year). Orygen had only one fundraising staff member at the time. The organisation had never run a capital campaign or major gifts program before, and there was no developed culture of philanthropy. Orygen’s first million-dollar gift set them on the path to success and the long-awaited redevelopment of the Orygen Centre will transform the way they work.
