Anjali C Swain
National Head (Founder)

Anjali is a commerce graduate from Deshbandhu College of Delhi University and later Masters in Business Administration from ICFAI Tripura.

Like many development officers and consultants, she entered the field of fund-raising not by desire but by accident and she stayed. On reflection, her primary motivation for doing this work is of course her strong belief in the inestimable value of non-profit organizations in itself.

As per Anjali, she still recalls the first organization where she served as trainee fund-raiser and felt that fund-raising was somehow distasteful and that one day the organization would have enough money and would no longer need to engage in such “practices". As a new fund-raiser she understood that “people give to people”. She believes strongly in a team concept of fund-raising, it is true that “there is no limit to the amount of money that can be raised if you do not care who gets the credit”. Friend, Fun and fund-raising are not only a noble vocation, but it allows her to engage with people. Finally, she believes whatever success she may have achieved derives from her passionate belief for the organizations which she has served as either the chief development officer or principal consultant.

Anjali’s last position was Resource Mobilisation Head- Mumbai for “Oxfam India”. In her tenure with Oxfam, she built a strong team for a couple of In-house operations in cities like Bangalore, Delhi, Noida & Mumbai. Currently, she holds the position of National Head for Retention & Training in FUNDreamz.
