Considering Alternative Funding and Revenue Options Post-COVID

by National Sports Convention | September 24, 2020 | News

The challenge of kickstarting the industry again post-COVID will be dependent on the economic situation community sport and associations find themselves in. It could be the catalyst that many have needed to review their financial strategy and explore alternative revenue options.

The NSC Forums will explore alternative approaches that could generate new and innovative revenue streams. Courtney Henry, Head of Philanthropy at the Australian Sports Foundation will explore the options available for sport at community, state and national level. Here Courtney discusses the opportunities with Martin Sheppard, explaining that large charities have benefited from philanthropy as a key income source, so sport now has the opportunity to embrace the conversation around philanthropy.
