Attendees explored how they could support campaign

The first In A Nutshell session was delivered by Paul Tyack, Associate Director and Head of Institutional Philanthropy at Office of Philanthropic Partnerships and Alumni (OPPA) with Alison Kerwin, Director of Marketing. The session gave an early insight into plans for the fundraising campaign for York which will be publicly launched in early 2019 as one of the Vice-Chancellor's Strategic Priorities.

Paul explained that the campaign will position York as a sector leader in fundraising and alumni engagement and will raise significant new income for student scholarships, activities and enterprise, research and the campus.

It wasn't just all listening though with attendees exploring how they could support the campaign in their own roles and departments.

The next In A Nutshell will focus on the Estate Masterplan and will take place on 22 May.
