From 2005-2009, I managed and co-ordinated a series of fundraising events for The Funding Network raising £40,000+ per event. I directed event logistics from venue selection to completion – designing, as well, the marketing material for each event. I was also instrumental in bringing the Youth version of The Funding Network: YTFN to fruition – co-ordinating the full launch from brainstorming session to successful implementation. The Youth event was awarded the prestigious national Third Sector Excellence Awards Ceremony for ‘Best Fundraising Event’.
More recently, I have been organising a series of dinner conversations in London for iPartner India which invites potential donors to enjoy a dinner in the company of an expert in social change in India. The events are organised with the aim of bringing donors closer to a range of grass-roots projects, to listen to the people making change happen and in so doing, raise awareness as well as funds.
