Martina started with individual fundraising when she joined the team at TI Slovakia in 2014. Over time she became responsible for the entire fundraising agenda – from daily communication with donors and supporters, management of the donations portal and preparation of the group’s newsletter, to coordinating and managing cost-effective fundraising activities and campaigns as well as developing new partnerships with corporate providers of various services and expanding TI’s network of individual donors. Since December 2014, she has also been voluntarily working as a fundraising assistant for the Slovak branch of Amnesty International. Martina is really enthusiastic and passionate about fundraising and is constantly trying to find new, more effective (essentially low-cost) ways and means for fundraising and promotion. Most of her experience comes from “learning by doing”, but she really enjoys being inspired by and learning from professional fundraisers.
