Valerie fell in to fundraising after leaving university (with a degree in Maths and Economics) when she stumbled across a leaflet about joining Help the Aged’s Youth Campaign. She has held senior management roles at the YMCA, NSPCC, The Outward Bound Trust and RNIB and now combines running her own fundraising and management consultancy with being a non-executive director in the NHS. Valerie has been a columnist at Third Sector, is a regular speaker at conferences, the author of all four editions of the bestselling book Corporate Fundraising and has recently joined the Institute of Fundraising’s Policy Committee after completing her term on their Standards Committee. She is very proud to have been awarded the honour of Fellow of the Institute. She is an active volunteer fundraiser and is trustee of two charities.
