Peter Lewis, the new Chief Executive of the Institute of Fundraising, starts work at its London headquarters today.
In his first weeks Peter will meet fundraising professionals and volunteers across the UK, attend one of the Institute’s one-day conferences and visit organisational members including the National Trust, Action on Hearing Loss, Tate and Breakthrough Breast Cancer. He will also meet fundraisers in Scotland and Wales.
Lewis said: “The IoF is at the forefront of the charity fundraising profession and I will ensure that the organisation continues to meet the growing and changing needs of fundraisers and the wider charitable sector. Fundraisers are the lifeblood of many charities and the bottom line is the more better trained and better supported fundraisers we have, the more cash we will have coming in to UK charities.”
