First time I've seen new concepts in a fundraising magazine - very exciting!

"Congratulations on your latest edition of the FINZ magazine. The content is really great, it is a great step towards really boosting FINZ’s profile and capability to support and grow fundraising in New Zealand.  I have over 10 years fundraising experience here and in the UK, and this is the first time I have seen a few new concepts in a fundraising magazine that I genuinely wasn’t aware of – and that is actually very exciting for me. So well done, and I look forward to seeing what your next steps are!"

Excellent articles!

"The new magazine has some excellent articles in there thanks. (I’m not saying that just because I have an article in there). "
