National Fundraising Development Manager
Ross Wiggan moved to The Fundraising partnership after 13 years setting up, managing and growing the Sue Ryder national fundraising lottery. Having launched the draw, Ross grew the lottery to over 53,000 weekly entries, generating over £2.5million per year. Whilst also overseeing the charity's Regular Giving campaigns, Ross has raised over £20million for Sue Ryder.
Ross is passionate about long term quality donors and continually pushed this message above focusing on short term gains with high attrition. With a focus on data, lifetime value and also innovation Ross was the first to launch a charity Lottery in a Retail environment that allowed shop customers to buy, check and claim prizes in store, adding £500,000 per year to the charity's fundraising efforts. Respected in the sector, Ross is here to help our charity partners push for more with their fundraising, either with advice, or as an outsourced resource.
Away from work, Ross spends most of his time with his two children and dreams one day to live somewhere warm and close to the sea (don't we all!)
