Glenda MacKenzie, Biography
Glenda has over 30 years Fundraising experience, at Fundraiser to Director level. She has worked with several leading Scottish charities (Capability Scotland, MS Society Scotland, Alzheimer Scotland to name but 3!), as a sole fundraiser and leader of small & large teams.
Glenda is passionate about raising funds whether by traditional or more quirky methods! Back in the late 1980’s she organised the first Sponsored Abseil in Edinburgh with scores of people descending a Hotel on Queensferry Road; has organised several high-value glittering Gala Ball’s and glitzy dinners and lunches raising hundreds of thousands of pounds through sponsorship, raffle and auction income. She has also used the latter part of her career to focus on raising thousands of pounds from Trusts & Foundations for capital projects.
Fundraising is all about building relationships with people; funders, supporters and most importantly those within the charitable community that are being supported – this is something that Glenda excels at.
