Harpreet Kondel

Fundraising Specialist 

A senior fundraiser with 25 years’ experience within the charitable sector, I have acquired my experience within both agencies and charities. During my career I have provided both strategic and practical leadership to grow income for a number of organisations, including the British Red Cross and Barnardo’s, and have managed income in excess of £35 million per year and teams of up to 100.

In a voluntary capacity, I am a trustee at RoSPA, who have been at the heart of accident prevention in the UK for 100 years. I am also a member of the Institute of Fundraising (IoF) Special Interest Group on Donor Experience and also serve on the IoF Convention Board.

Since 2017, I have been providing interim fundraising support for a number of charities, including Diabetes UK, Christian Aid and Dementia UK.


1. Why did you decide you wanted to be on the Board? 

I wanted to increase my involvement with the IoF and I felt that having been a fundraiser for over 25 years I could add some value to the convention.


2. What are you going to bring to the Board?

My experience as a fundraiser and my experience as an attendee of IoF. As well as my experience as a conference speaker and my knowledge of the sector, and of course my networks.


3.  What are you looking forward to about this year’s Fundraising Convention?

I am looking forward to being able to spend some time with my colleagues from across the sector, reinforcing some of what I already know and of course learning something new!
