The Australian Fellowship of Evangelical Students (AFES) is based in Sydney and they are undoubtedly thought leaders in their line of service and the largest organisation of their type.
In a nutshell AFES place staff on the various university campuses around Australia to help and encourage students in their Christian growth. They know what their purpose is, they focus on it extremely well and they’re completely self-funded.
For Craig Reid (IT Manager) and Dave Dorman (National Administrator) it's all about serving their supporters, staff, community and the AFES mission. All this shows in the way they challenge the status quo and continue to move their organisation forward in a thoughtful and considered way.
As with all not-for-profit organisations, they have an obligation to those that support them, to ensure their resources are used in the most productive way possible. And if they wanted to scale their organisation they needed to future-proof the efficiency of their administrative process.
In addition AFES have a duty to mitigate risk and ensure they are meeting all legal and compliance regulations.
