Paul has worked in fundraising at the Brewery Arts Centre since 2008. Initially, his focus was on raising funds for a range of education and capital projects from trusts and foundations, public bodies and lottery funders. This included successful bids to ACE Grants for the Arts, Foyle Foundation, Youth Music, and the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation. Since 2012, Paul’s remit has evolved to include the expansion of individual and corporate giving. Key achievements have been the launch of the Brewery Membership, which now has over 520 members; the successful implementation of a Catalyst programme (Arts Council England), which has raised over £70,000 in match funding to date; and the creation of a new Business Membership. Currently, Paul is heavily committed to fundraising for a major capital project called Our Digital Future, which aims to transform the Brewery into a flagship arts centre for the 21st century. Previously, Paul spent 13 years as a freelance project manager, which involved running a number of fundraising initiatives for the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust.
