MAJOR GIFTS TEAM
MSF has internationally identified Major Gifts as key to the strategic and cost-effective growth in income for the MSF Movement. The UK contribution to this expansion is delivered by the Major Gifts Team through the development, management and implementation of strategies to identify, cultivate, solicit and steward major donors.
MSF UK has a committed group of major donors made up of individuals, corporates, and trusts & foundations. We currently define a major donor as any individual donating £10,000 and above or any organisation (company or trust) donating £5,000 and above. In 2021 the Major Gifts Team, at the time comprised of nine people, raised over £12 million from more than 400 major donors:

- The Major Gifts Manager is responsible for team strategy and managing a small selection of the highest value relationships at the £100k plus level.
The Major Gifts Stewardship Assistant is a key role within the team, and central to ensuring our fundraising success.
Our team values underpin how we work together as a team and it’s important that we hold ourselves, and one another, accountable to these: respect, integrity, humanity, accountability, and empowerment, with collaboration at the centre.
