Ellen is a freelance fundraising strategist and (Open) Innovation Specialist with several years of experience in Innovation Management for Dutch charities. She is a strong advocate for attracting supporters instead of donors, raising impact support instead of only funds. This gives all kinds of stakeholders the opportunity to support their charity of choice with other means like time, expertise, network, data, or their creativity. To achieve this, innovation needs to be a truly joined effort both within and outside of the organisation. For the last three years, she has been involved in the organisation of the IFC Innovation Camp.
