Enquiries Cohort

Enquiries Cohort

Are you a fundraiser with a curious mind?

In 2021-2023, Arts Fundraising & Philanthropy will launch a series of enquiries in relation to challenging areas of arts, culture and heritage fundraising, with a view to informing future policy and research.


Each enquiry will be made up of eight fundraisers working in arts, culture and heritage organisations.  They will work with the wider Arts Fundraising & Philanthropy team to explore a topic of national significance.


Fundraisers will be drawn from a wide range of types and scales of organisations from across the UK. Participants will be at different stages in their careers, from those taking their first steps into fundraising to CEO level.


Our first cohort of fundraisers will work together to discuss key challenges around ethical fundraising. The cohort are:


Sanayah Malik, Corporate Relations Executive, the British Library

Nick Jackman, Campaign and Projects Director, London Philharmonic Orchestra

Ruth Lee, Executive Director, Aakash Odedra Company

Akulah Agbami, Director, BLACK* Artists on the Move

Jack Charlesworth, Associate Director, Outset Contemporary Art Fund
