Chris Brooks

Digital Fundraising Manager

Education: MSc Social Cultural Theory, University of Bristol

My responsibilities at Buffalo:

I oversee the small but fast-growing Digital Fundraising Team at Buffalo, providing Giving Day consultancy to clients in the education sector. Giving Days are the latest addition to Buffalo’s fundraising services and are a great new way to engage alumni with something a bit different. We have a few clients running their third Giving Days with us now, but often we work with clients on their first-ever Giving Day, which is always exciting and gives us loads of room to be creative and develop the service. Our clients always appreciate our knowledge and experience as we guide them through every step of the 3 – 4 months journey to prepare a successful Giving Day.

Why I chose to work for Buffalo:

I was looking to work at a small growing business with the opportunity for career progression. At the same time, I wanted something where I felt my efforts benefited more than just my own bank account. I’ve been at Buffalo for over 7 years now and know I made the right decision. It’s a fun and friendly place to work full of sociable hard-working people. I manage a brilliant team and we raise loads of money for good causes every year.
