Soar Print New Zealand Fundraising Excellence Award

Auckland War Memorial Museum for their WWI Commemoration Project – Cenotaph Home and Community Grant Application.

A Premiere award is not a guaranteed annual award. It is reserved for those campaigns which in the opinion of the judges is a stand-out example of exemplary fundraising.

In 2015, such a campaign was submitted for judging.  It not only ticked all the boxes but it impressed. It was an example of a whole of an organisation approach to seeking and securing funding for something of vital importance to those working for the organisation and those who would benefit.

It was a one-off opportunity and was planned and executed with that level of risk in mind. Not surprisingly, the detail associated with this project was compiled to an outstanding level. In parallel, organisational engagement was extensive at all levels - governance, executive, fundraising team and service delivery staff. In all respects, this Premiere Award is justly deserved and the judges had no difficulty in selecting it and conveying their sincere congratulations to the winners
