Most of the fantastic people who volunteer at Project Ability are artists, graduates and undergraduates who help our tutors during our arts workshops. Most, but not all, as this week’s volunteer Cathy Dowling shows. Cathy has had a long career in external relations at Scottish universities, at Stirling Management Centre, Glasgow Caledonian University, Glasgow University and latterly at Glasgow School of Art.
She hopes to add her experience of building partnerships with companies and drawing down funding to Project Ability’s fundraising strategy. She had been lending her skills to our charity one afternoon a week for the last year, and is a great addition to the team!
“I know there are bighearted organisations and individuals in Glasgow and beyond who’d be entranced by the talent, creativity and wonderful work that happens here. I hope I can help with outreach. Times are tough in fundraising and we need to tell compelling stories to bring those key donors on board”.
Thank you Cathy!
