Introducing Alan Crawford – our new Head of Neighbourhood Fundraising

Alan will take forward, for us and our Castle Vale third sector partners, the Endowment Trust Fund (ETF) legacy project over the next three years.

ETF as a charity funding projects and community organisations in Castle Vale will close in September after investing over £8m in Castle Vale since 2005. The project will seek to bring continued investment to a consortia of local organisations by bidding for external funding together with advising local groups and individuals on how to raise funding.

Alan brings a wealth of fundraising experience having spent the last 7 years supporting voluntary sector groups across Solihull to generate funding. In addition he has delivered fundraising consultancy support to The Firs and Bromford Neighbours Together Partnership, the School for Social Entrepreneurs and the Solihull Enterprise for Success Programme.
