Nicole was appointed as a major gift fundraiser on a monthly retainer to target London-based alumni. She worked in London and in Oxford, getting to know the staff and the College’s funding priorities, and identified, researched and approached new prospects over an eighteen month period. She also curated and delivered a series of targeted cultivation events in London. As a result of her work, St Hugh’s significantly increased its prospect pipeline and secured six figure gifts.
“Nicole’s support enabled St Hugh’s to set-up a new fundraising programme and broaden our reach without diverting resource from existing priorities. Her work in assessing the market-place and cultivating new prospects, was not only fruitful; it gave us the evidence we needed to justify investment in a new permanent fundraising role that has led to ongoing success”
