A Bermudian fundraising professional has landed a scholarship to give her the chance to learn from overseas experts.

Pahn-ya Ratteray, who works for the Bermuda College Foundation, was named the Chamberlain Scholarship Award winner by the Association of Fundraising Professionals.

It will provide financial backing for her to attend the International Conference of the Association of Fundraising Professionals in Baltimore next March. Ms Ratteray said: “I am honoured to receive this scholarship and look forward to networking and learning from other fundraising professionals at AFP Icon 2020 in Baltimore.

“I appreciate the opportunity to deepen my knowledge and I look forward to sharing what I will learn with our donors, colleagues and board at Bermuda College Foundation.”

The annual conference will include keynote speakers José Andrés, a culinary innovator and TV chef, and Zainab Salbi, a humanitarian and TV host.

AFP Bermuda Chapter president Gordon Johnson said: “Ms Ratteray is an emerging talent in the field of professional fundraising who is committed to improving her skills and furthering the important work of the Bermuda College Foundation.

“Ms Ratteray holds a critical role at Bermuda College Foundation and joins a growing list of emerging Bermuda professionals dedicated to ethical fundraising on island.”

BCF chairman Mark Berry said the move would “further help us to follow strategic, meaningful and ethical fundraising practices”.
