Howard Lake | 19 December 2008 | News Tagged with: Management Recruitment / people Alan Gosschalk, Fundraising Director at housing charity Shelter, is to leave the organisation following an organisational restructuring this month.The charity is merging its fundraising department with its shops, training and social enterprise department into a single income and enterprise division to be called Shelter Trading Ltd. A new position of head of fundraising will be created, but unlike the current director of fundraising position, this will not be on the senior management team.Both directors of the two divisions were invited to apply for the single post, but Gosschalk says he “took a positive decision not to apply as I want to focus on fundraising”.Former director of shops, training and social enterprise Ed Jordan will head the new division.Gosschalk, who joined Shelter as fundraising director in February 2000, said: “I remain very committed to Shelter – which will forever be in my heart (and Will!)”. He added that he will be helping the new Director to set up the new division which will go live in April, and expects to continue at Shelter until May 2009.He added: “In the longer term I will seek other opportunities outside Shelter.”Having been born overseas and with a human rights background, he has a particular interest in working for overseas development charities or children’s charities. He does not plan to set up his own consultancy and intends to stay in or around London.During his time at Shelter Gosschalk helped more than double the charity’s gross and net voluntary income, and now more than half of its voluntary funding is derived from regular giving. He and his team launched a successful appeal that spawned www.keystothefuture.org.uk, secured Big Lottery Fund grants, and increased the number and scale of giving from trusts and high net worth individuals.He also oversaw Shelter as Flora London Marathon charity of the year, which is “still bringing in half a million this year”, together with a major corporate partnership with Vodafone for £3.7 million over 4 years.He is also proud of the fact that Shelter has developed a large network of volunteer leaders in major gift fundraising.Alan Gosschalk is on 0844 515 2077 / 0207 505 2077.www.shelter.org.uk AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Fundraising Director Alan Gosschalk to leave Shelter 21 total views, 1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.
