  • Grow income by identifying the audiences, channels, products and messages that maximise long-term sustainable revenue.
  • Develop high-quality supporter care, including responsive and prompt donor care and stewardship.
  • Develop donors aiming to increase their levels of support, promote legacy giving, and develop new ways of giving, including one-off donations and committed giving.
  • To contribute to the development and implementation of the fundraising strategy.
