Purplegrass Charity Consulting

Purplegrass Consulting is no longer taking on any new clients.

After 10 years at Purplegrass Consulting, I’m taking a break from consulting and I’m delighted to be joining Concern Worldwide to take up the role of Head of Public Fundraising and Private Sector Engagement. I would like to thank the many clients we have worked with over the last decade. It has been a real privilege to play a part in the growth and development of so many amazing charities and social enterprises in Ireland and overseas and to meet so many inspiring leaders, fundraisers and change-makers who, through their vision and commitment, are quite simply helping to make the world a better place. Keep doing what you are doing. The world needs more of you.

With thanks and best wishes

Gaby Murphy
