We are pleased to share with you the SIX Funders Node Adelaide Retreat Report that outlines much of what was covered during our time together. Of course, the success of this retreat was only possible with every attendee bringing their expertise and willingness to learn and share – the Fay Fuller Foundation thanks each and every one for their leadership and insight.
