BCNA acknowledged by peers as leader in innovation
BCNA is thrilled to be voted by its peers as number six on GiveEasy’s 2016 Index of Australia’s most innovative not-for-profit organisations.
Now in its second year, the study includes responses from over 1000 not-for-profit organisations across Australia and asked them to nominate which of their 600,000 not-for-profit peers they viewed as leaders in the industry.
Run in conjunction with Australia Post and Westpac, the study examines how not-for-profits are using innovative structures to engage their stakeholders, with a focus on collaboration, culture and stakeholder engagement. The study also highlighted the changing nature of donors who increasingly wish to be more connected with the organisations they contribute to.
The study showed that innovation has significant influence on an organisation’s development, with the more innovative not-for-profits being 34 per cent more likely to have a growing budget than their counterparts.
CEO Christine Nolan said BCNA is delighted to be recognised by its peers as an innovative organisation, and that the acknowledgment is testament to staff who are always looking for ways to better connect members, donors and others who are involved in the organisation.
"It is very inspiring to work for an organisation where staff are constantly looking for creative ways to better support our members and strengthen our performance," Christine said.
