Matrtin Kaufman

While some philanthropy advisers let their clients give to whichever clients they want, Kaufman specialises in connecting charities within the educational and cultural sectors to like-minded philanthropists.

His effort – as chair of the Institute of Fundraising — is to try and bridge a gap which has hurt the arts as government grants have dwindled as well as giving. His efforts — which started with the Cultural Sector Network last year — is aimed at more professional fundraising by charities – including greater transparency and a ‘far higher level of engagement between philanthropists and the causes they support’.

In his other career as principal of Martin Kaufman Philanthropy, he’s worked as a consultant in gift fundraising as well as a trainer and coach with over 100 organisations and thousands of donors trying to find the ‘lightbulb’ moment when both sides ‘wake up to new possibilities’.
