New faces in our fundraising team

We’ve recently welcomed two new Fundraising team members - Jude and Hannah.

Jude McCracken has recently joined us as our Supporter Development Manager – a newly created position, to add support and increase the focus of our fundraising activity. Jude says it shows Presbyterian Support Otago is “really serious about a donor relations programme and fundraising.”

Jude explains “Fundraising seems to be a profession you fall into. No one leaves school and says ‘I want to be a fundraiser’, but it is an extremely rewarding career. I enjoy all the interactions with donors and potential donors.

"For me this role is all about building and nurturing relationships  with our existing donors and supporters, and potential donors and supporters, however they choose to contribute to our work and help us achieve our overall goals.”

Hannah Day joined the team as our Fundraising Events Coordinator, covering maternity leave for another team member. Hannah is focused on looking after our community and corporate events and is “very much about people supporting people.”

If you would like to find out more about how you can be involved, please contact Jude at or call (03) 477 7115.

Welcome to the team, Jude (pictured right above) and Hannah (pictured left).
