So, 2020 Marks two landmarks for me. I am going to be 60 and the Dorset Community Foundation (DCF) is going to be 20. What better way to celebrate this but to combine the two?
For thirty years I have raised money, given it out, told others how to do it and even lectured on it at Universities. However, as in most industries, I’m still learning.
Gary Bentham has been a fundraiser and funding adviser for over 25 years, in this time he has raised, or worked with others to raise over £20,000,000. Gary also started the Dorset Community Foundation in 2000 and is now one of our Ambassadors.
