Susan joined London Funders as a trustee in November 2022. She places great emphasis on the role of collaboration and partnership in creating social impact and transformation.
Having spent eight years in a variety of fundraising roles, Susan understands the issues facing charities as they seek to access funds. She is passionate about making the process and charity/donor relationships as accessible, transparent and friendly as possible. She is a strong advocate for creating greater impact through the time and talents of the people in her organisation to complement and transform the grant-making capacity of the Haberdashers’ Company.
Ask Susan about: the world of Livery Companies, what is means to be a sub-regional funder, how to improve the funding application process for small/medium charities, and what collaboration and partnership can look like for a membership organisation.
Susan’s hidden London gem: is Beppe’s Café in West Smithfield. She confirms that it is the best greasy spoon café in London (bold statement but true).
