FUNDRAISING NEWS: KIDS seeks to push corporate giving through new post

KIDS, the national charity for children and young people with disabilities, is set to expand its corporate fundraising activities and has created a new role in the organisation with that aim in mind.

Samantha Scott, the recently appointed head of corporate and major trusts, said: "For the first couple of months I'll be visiting the KIDS centres, talking to the people there and using the findings to work on a corporate and trust strategy.

"KIDS has already developed strong relationships with a number of companies through high-profile events, boards of trustees, patrons and committees.

I plan to develop these relationships."

KIDS' revenue comes from major events, trusts and regional fundraising.

The charity is also keen to expand its donor base. "As a national charity offering assistance at a local level, we're in a good position to develop support through corporate membership and sponsorship," said Stuart Willson, director of marketing.
