Sponsorships | Partnerships | Corporate Fundraising

Hi, I’m Heather.

I love being a fundraiser.

More than that, I love working with fundraisers so they can feel confident and successful at raising money from companies.

Whether you need a sounding board to solve an immediate sticky corporate fundraising issue, or are seeking a long term partner in moving your corporate partnerships forward. I’m here! 

My years of experience in the sector, backed by my business degree, means I get it! I have lived where you are, and this means I can be your partner in solving problems and achieving your targets. I’ve worked with small shops to big federated models to raise (lots of) money through effective win-win cause marketing and corporate partnerships.
