Whilst I had specialist knowledge and experience in Trusts, NAFS enabled me to expand my skill sets and get up to date practice and knowledge, which has transformed my fundraising career. It built up my confidence and helped me build new networks.

Who I am

Ruth Harvey was voted IoF West Midlands Fundraiser of the Year in 2018 for contribution to the Midlands arts & cultural sector. She works with BE Festival, Birmingham Repertory Theatre & Sampad.

How the NAFS team helped

I have been fundraising for around seven years, specialising in arts and culture for around four years. I felt a little stuck and unsure of the next steps in my career. NAFS reinvigorated my sense of purpose and focus, gave me a host of new skills and knowledge to deploy – which has enabled me to grow my career and support a number of organisations across the Midlands. I’m now an award-winning fundraiser too!
