Margie Beattie – Philanthropy Advisor

Margie enjoys advocacy and building relationships, and has evolved from being an advocate in the courts of New Zealand and the United Kingdom, to a passionate advocate for the local causes she supports. Always open to sharing her fundraising experience and insights since the start of her professional fundraising journey in 2008, Margie has worked directly with a range of organisations; initially in the education sector with Wellesley College, Eastbourne, in the arts sector with Aotearoa New Zealand Festival of the Arts and more latterly in healthcare with the Gillies McIndoe Research Institute (GMRI). She has held governance positions in education and in the arts. She delights in gathering stories that connect with others sense of belonging and create the best opportunity to unlock giving.
