Digital Fundraising Academy, with Nick Burne Consulting

Digital Fundraising Academy

DATE: May 2023 – ongoing


ABOUT THE PROJECT: The Digital Fundraising Academy is a training and coaching project from Nick Burne Consulting, that works closely with charities to upskill their teams in digital fundraising. From May 2023 to September 2023, I was project lead for the migration of the Digital Fundraising Academy from GivePanel to Nick Burne Consulting, and I continue to support the Academy with planning, and development and delivery of training. My responsibilities during the migration included:

  • Set up and customisation of a new Hubspot database for the Digital Fundraising Academy
  • Recruitment of the Academy team, including training and induction for an Academy Assistant, and recruitment and onboarding of a senior fundraising and business development specialist for the Head of Academy role (the brilliant Carla McLuskie has taken up this role)
  • Community management of the Academy online group
  • Development of training webinars, booking experts from a wide range of digital fundraising specialities to speak to the Academy community
  • Hosting of coaching calls and virtual roundtables to provide real time support and advice to the Academy members
  • Creation of a website for the Academy, in collaboration with Carla McLuskie
  • Appeared as a featured expert, delivering a webinar on Google Grant Ads
  • Development of training content for the Academy library, including video tutorials and written guides

It’s a privilege to work with the Academy and its wonderful community of members. Any charities looking to upskill their teams in the important discipline of digital fundraising, contact the Academy to apply for membership today – there’s nothing else like it in the charity sector.
