R8,800 pledged so far
I have been raising money from UK trust, individual, high net worth and government donors for over three decades. I have authored of 28 books, 21 on fundraising, have contributed to numerous online and printed publications globally and am a qualified trainer in adult education, focusing on fundraising, non-profit management, reporting and social entrepreneurship. I was one of the first to successfully raise substantial funding from the UK Lottery for organisations outside of Britain when their international budget was first launched. I have also assisted in/overseen numerous large successful grant applications to donors such as the former DFID (now the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office), Comic Relief and many other UK-based donor entities. Although I have assisted organisations in over 30 countries globally, I have focussed much of my time working for and consulting to non-profits and universities in sub-Saharan Africa and was made a Fellow of the Southern African Institute of Fundraising.
