MINNEAPOLIS, USA, 17 June 2020—BWF, the global fundraising consultancy, is excited to announce the addition of Jason Briggs as a UK-based Consulting Partner to its growing team of experts.

For 37 years, BWF has advanced the development profession through data-informed campaign planning, prospect development innovation, technology and data science solutions, and program growth strategies. Service in Europe was historically maintained from BWF’s North American headquarters, but now Briggs will bring local coordination to an expanding BWF Europe.

Previously, Jason was director of development at Cavendish Cancer Care, and before that he worked as a consultant for Graham-Pelton, specialising in insight and campaign planning. While at the University of Sheffield, he headed up prospect research and insight and sat on the senate’s academic research ethics committee.

Jason is a fellow for Halpin Partnership, specialising in higher education advancement. He is an active committee member for the Institute of Fundraising’s Researchers in Fundraising Committee, which runs Europe’s largest gathering of fundraising intelligence specialists. He is founding trustee of Land of Joy, which raised £1.2m to found a Tibetan retreat centre, and trustee for the Foundation for Developing Compassion & Wisdom.

Jason’s varied experiences in the not-for-profit sector is unique in that he has gained senior experience in both systems and leadership roles. His experience ranges across higher education, national and local charities, and healthcare, as well as religious organisations. He is known for his free-thinking approach to advancement, having been awarded both an Insight in Fundraising Award 2016 for his work on international philanthropy and a CASE Europe Iain More Award 2017 ‘for emerging development professional’.
