Bonar Bell, Director of Fundraising and Engagement for Impact

“I want to help children as our world is full of inequality. I believe we have the opportunity to eradicate poverty and I want to do whatever I can to help. The time is now!” 

I lead our fundraising and engagement for impact team. I joined ChildFund New Zealand in the beginning of 2018, fresh off the plane from 10 years at ChildFund Alliance’s Canadian member, Children Believe.

My background is in project and programme design and I’m very experienced in customer service, fundraising, digital marketing and advertising with specialised skills in copywriting and graphic design (this comes in handy all the time). I am passionate about building up the in-house skills on our team and being even more efficient, so we can send more of the donations we receive to the communities who need it most. 

I love coming to work every day knowing that I get to help children in need, in one of New Zealand’s best teams! It’s extremely rewarding to see the results and know that, even if it’s just by a little bit, I’m doing something to make the world a better place.  

When I’m not at work I am likely at the dog park with my furry pooch, Pogo. We are always looking for new places to explore, so be on the lookout for me in your area!
