I am Marissa, Solace’s Head of Income Generation. I am privileged to enable the incredible work Solace does by raising vital funds. I lead the wonderful Income Generation team who raise funds through a variety of means, including from individuals, grant funders, events, and businesses.
Before joining Solace in March 2022, I had ten years of experience fundraising for Alzheimer’s Research UK, Action on Hearing Loss, National Autistic Society and most recently Head of Fundraising at St Leonard’s Hospice.
I am continually blown away by the commitment of my colleagues to end violence against women and girls and am passionately committed to ensuring that my team enables this work in an ethical and empowering way. I often say I have the most wonderful job - I get to make people feel amazing for supporting a brilliant cause!
