Amanda McLean

Amanda joined the Institute of Fundraising as CEO in November 2010 after two years working with Prostate UK in the same post but resigned in March 2011 citing a desire for a better work/life balance and to regain a direct connection with a specific charitable cause.

Amanda studied Law at St. Hilda’s College, Oxford and started her career in the voluntary sector as a charity fundraiser with Action for Children in 1994.

She later worked as director of fundraising and communications with DebRA UK between 2006 and 2008.
