SpecialityGlobal head of digital fundraising, Sightsavers
Global head of digital fundraising, SightsaversElla joined Sightsavers in 2013 to manage the digital fundraising, working across the UK, Ireland, Italy, US and Scandinavia. In that time, they’ve gone from a team of one (Ella!) to a team of nine, and grown annual online income by 500%. Ella is a fundraiser who happens to work in digital rather than the other way around, having cut her teeth as a corporate fundraiser, then managing face-to-face and direct mail campaigns before moving into Fundraising Innovation and on to Digital Fundraising. Ella enjoys the challenge of working in an ever-changing area of fundraising, although she does sometimes wish there was a tried and tested answer for how we should do things!
