Alison Barry

‘I am motivated to leverage SVA’s first class portfolio of work to attract donations from individuals and organisations who want to see their investment translate into system wide improvements to spare individuals and families the perverse impact of socio-economic disadvantage.’

Alison has 25 years of philanthropic and leadership experience including over 10 years garnered at SVA firstly as a fundraising team manager, then as associate director and director and now  fundraising team leader.

Prior to joining SVA, Alison spent 15 years as a leader in corporate communications with national and international organisations, spearheading brand and marketing campaigns.  She is a passionate fundraiser and her motivation to work at SVA stems from a desire to achieve the highest level of social impact and “game-changing” advances in tackling socio-economic disadvantage.
