Hi! I’m Rebecca.
I’m an experienced communications and fundraising professional with a love of all things digital. I’ve worked as a sole fundraiser for hyper local and UK wide charities; a communications officer for the Institute of Fundraising Scotland; and was responsible for communications and external engagement at the Euan MacDonald Centre for MND Research. I’m particularly passionate about small charities, and strive to help these organisations be the best they can be through consultancy work. That’s one of the many reasons I co-founded Edinburgh Digital Meet Up; to share learning with others, so that together, we can make this world a better place.
A keen speaker, trainer and blogger, I’ve run workshops on digital fundraising for the Institute of Fundraising, Glasgow Council for the Voluntary Sector, and 8 Hours Overtime Edinburgh, and have had my work featured on prominent third sector blogs, including Just Giving, Third Force News, and Fundraising UK.
I offer consultancy opportunities in communications, engagement and fundraising, particularly to small charities who are keen to make a big impact. Having worked for a wide range of small charities in Scotland and beyond, I understand the unique challenges faced by those working on a tight budget; as such, I offer services to suit everyone. For more details on my work history and key achievements, please visit my LinkedIn page.
When I’m not working, I’m spending time with my wonderful wife Laura, rescue greyhound Toby, and our African Pygmy Hedgehog, Milo. Living in Leith, North Edinburgh, I also love to travel, play and review escape games, geek out over public transport (don’t ask!) and am grudgingly training for a half marathon – for charity, of course.
