Lily Powell

Giving Day Officer

Education: MA Human Rights, University College London

My responsibilities at Buffalo:

As a Giving Day Officer, I use a multi-channel fundraising approach to raise funds from key groups for schools and universities. We work with clients for 3-4 months to plan the Giving Day, and I encourage everyone in the community to come together and celebrate the institution using on-site activities and challenges.

Why I chose to work for Buffalo:

I love the challenge of raising large funds in a short period of time and using my creativity to prepare Giving Days. It’s really rewarding getting to work with a client on a project from the start to completion and help them meet their goals. The Buffalo team is also wonderful and so welcoming, it's a pleasure working with them!
