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.
