ASI is the New Sponsor of Fundraising Institute Australia's Mentoring Program in New South Wales

Melbourne, VIC (07 April 2016) - Advanced Solutions International (ASI), a leading global provider of software and services for associations and not-for-profits, today announced it has signed on as the new sponsor of the Fundraising Institute Australia's (FIA) Mentoring Program in New South Wales. FIA is the peak national body representing professional fundraising in Australia.

FIA's mentoring program in NSW encourages seasoned professionals to share their knowledge and experience to help further the career development of those who are new to fundraising. Through the program, available as a benefit of membership to FIA members, mentors provide valuable insights, advice, and guidance to mentees, regardless of their age.

ASI has supported a similar FIA program in Victoria and is now expanding its reach.

"In our work with more than 4,000 clients, ASI has observed the best practices of some of the most successful organisations across the globe and we regularly share these lessons with others as a trusted adviser," said Paul Ramsbottom, Managing Director of ASI Asia-Pacific. "This is why we're so thrilled to provide financial support for the FIA Mentoring Program to encourage experienced fundraisers in New South Wales to share their wisdom with those who are new to the profession in a spirit of cooperation that will no doubt have a very positive, wide-ranging impact on the community."

"As part of FIA's mentoring program for members, we match experienced fundraisers with newer fundraisers to share their knowledge and encourage the not-for-profit leaders of tomorrow," said Rob Edwards, Chief Executive Officer of FIA.

"With this sponsorship, we'll be able to expand our efforts to mentor more fundraisers and we're very pleased that ASI are supporting this important initiative."
