Adrian Beney

Partner, More Partnership

Adrian Beney is a director of More Partnership and has been in fundraising for nearly 25 years.

Much of this was at the University of Durham where he established the university's development office, starting the alumni relations, regular giving and major gifts programmes, and laying the foundations for a major capital campaign.

He served on the Council for Advancement and Support of Education's Philanthropy Commission from 1998 to 2001, was the first non-North American recipient of the prestigious CASE Crystal Apple for Teaching Excellence, and was a contributor to the DfES-sponsored Thomas report on increasing voluntary giving to higher education.

He is trustee of three charities – two grantmakers and one grant seeker.

It’s not just arts and education charities that need to consider the implications of gifts from controversial major donors and corporates. The subject of ethics isn’t clear-cut, says Adrian Beney, but every charity needs to know where it stands on the matter.

Fundraisers from traditional charities need to re-think their approach to  major donor fundraising, and the wealthy in general, if they are to attract the kinds of major gifts that the arts and higher education enjoy, says Adrian Beney

Institute, stay true to your guns on Right to Ask

Fundraisers are 'right to ask', and the Institute of Fundraising needs to take this message to the public, says Adrian Beney.

So is Higher Education really a charitable cause?

Having been fundraising for nearly 25 years, mostly in Higher Education (HE) you would expect me to answer "yes" to the question "is HE a charitable cause?" So what is the compelling message that is enabling fundraising to have big impacts in HE? Last year the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge each raised more than £100 million, and for many universities, gifts of £1 million or more are becoming sufficiently frequent that they are no longer big news.
