An exciting new chapter for the Localgiving Foundation
We’re delighted to announce that social entrepreneur Tom Latchford has been appointed as the new Chair of the Localgiving Foundation. Tom has helped raise tens of millions of pounds for charities online as founder of Raising IT, which is the UK market leader for websites and fundraising tools for the third sector. He will be bringing his experience, passion and philanthropic pedigree to help more local charities grow.
Marcelle Speller, the Foundation’s founder, has decided to hand the reins to Tom after 9 years’ service. We are hugely grateful to Marcelle for her vision in setting up Localgiving and her leadership throughout our first decade. Marcelle’s passion for local charities continues unabated and she will remain an ambassador for the organisation.
