Please vote – ideally for me!

If you’re a member of the Institute of Fundraising you’ll have had an email through asking you to vote for Trustees. And if you’ve gone into it, you’ll have seen that I am standing for election.

Why am I doing this? The reason is simple.

I believe that we owe it to our causes to fundraise cost-effectively. And we owe it to our donors to fundraise well – to inspire them about their giving. I know that the two things go together.

The Institute has a vital role in building the skills of fundraisers across all sectors, and for laying down the standards by which we should all work. It impacts on the way we all fundraise.

I’d like to use my role on the board to play a part in supporting the sector, helping fundraisers become better at their jobs and creating standards that mean donors have a better experience.

Please vote in the election. It is important. And if you like the sound of what I’d like to bring to the table, please vote for me.

Oh yes, for those of you who aren’t a member of the Institute, you should be! Click here now.
