Amanda Shepard

Fundraising and management consultant

"Rogare is inspiring a generation of fundraisers to think critically and differently; 


to challenge their own and others thinking; to use theory and evidence to better engage their supporters and drive forward the profession.

I am proud to be part of the Rogare movement and will continue to contribute whatever I can to its growth and success."

Amanda has worked in the not for profit sector for over 20 years. Originally in programmes and partnerships at The Prince's Trust, Amanda has since held a variety of income generating and development roles including Head of Professional Development and Director of Development at The Institute of Fundraising. She is now a charity consultant and supports organisations of all sizes – including BBC Children in Need, The VTCT Foundation and The Scar Free Foundation –  to increase their impact and income. Amanda is a trustee of PTA UK and a fellow of Rogare, The Fundraising Think Tank.
