Fundraising News: Prostate Cancer's fundraising chief in major donor remit

The Prostate Cancer Charity's director of fundraising, Eric Dale, has stepped sideways within the charity to take up a new role as head of major donors.

The charity has identified that major individual donors will be important to it achieving its target of almost tripling its annual income within four years.

Dale moved into his new position last month. He joined the charity in January from Merrill Lynch in Holland where he was chief executive .

"We have an ambitious development programme to raise our total yearly income from £3m to £8m by 2008," said the charity's chief executive John Neate. "Our work with major individual donors needed strengthening and our first target is to raise £600,000 next year."

Neate will conduct interviews for a new head of fundraising on 29 November.

He spoke recently at the Prostate Cancer Conference, which he called a defining moment for the strategic movement to improve funding and awareness of prostate cancer issues.
