We are pleased to announce that Greg Hodder and Matthew Horton, have joined the Craigmyle consultant team as of January 2023, bringing a wealth of fundraising experience especially in charity and educational sectors.
Following 17 years in fundraising, Greg brings extensive experience managing projects and fundraising for capital appeals and annual funds. He has initiated multi-million-pound capital appeals in a range of areas such as hospices and universities. Greg has significant experience working with major donors and has raised multiple six-figure sums. He is also well-versed in large events, trusts and foundations and individual and community giving. He has coached and run training sessions in fundraising skills for students, trustees and key stakeholders.
His degree in Education and English at Cambridge University gave Greg a passion for storytelling. He uses this experience to help charities tell their stories through their case for support and communications in a compelling way.
I am delighted to join Craigmyle which has such an established and successful track record. I look forward to drawing upon my skills and experience to assist a wide range of organisations.
