Steffi started her fundraising career working for a small consultancy in Birmingham, where she helped raise hundreds of thousands of pounds for charitable causes including community centres, schools and sports clubs through grant applications. After spending a year living and travelling in Canada, she returned to the UK in 2016, working as Trust Fundraising Administrator for the National Osteoporosis Society and then Development Officer for Safeline. Most of her experience lies in the health sector through trusts and grants fundraising, with experience in fundraising from individuals and through community and event fundraising.
Steffi moved into the arts sector by joining Birmingham Hippodrome in October 2018 as Trusts and Grants Manager. In this role, she is responsible for the trusts and grant fundraising strategy, trust and grant applications and stewardship with funders. Outside of work, she also offers fundraising advice on trust and grant applications on a voluntary basis to a number of charitable organisations.
