The Irish Heart Foundation, one of Ireland’s biggest health charities, has appointed a new head of fundraising to take over from long-time postholder, Ruth Findlater. Aidan Stacey joins the Foundation from the Dublin Simon Community where he was head of fundraising and communications.
Before Dublin Simon, Aidan’s background was in the commercial sector where he was Commercial Manager for the Tropicana brand. He previously worked with the National Safety Council and SMS Marketing.
Ruth Findlater will work alongside Aidan for several months before retiring from the Foundation. The Irish Heart Foundation receives most of its funding from donations from the public. A small share of funding is received from the Government.
