Jane Kaufmann Associates, Management, Fundraising and Recruitment Consultants

The Fitzwilliam Museum The Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge

“Jane Kaufmann must be amongst the most experienced in our business, as a fundraiser, consultant or head hunter. I first met Jane in the mid nineties when she tried to persuade me to succeed her at the Royal Opera House after she had masterminded Britain's most successful capital campaign in the arts. I stayed at the Royal Academy but was so impressed by her and Kate that I engaged JKA to help us devise a fundraising strategy and recruit key staff. I moved to Tate in 2005 but I continue to see Jane and Kate regularly and always welcome them as an impressive source of advice and information.”

John Nickson, Director Emeritus, Tate Foundation

“ I have worked with JKA on a major appeal at Somerset House, and on recruitment of an in-house fundraising capability at the Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich. In both cases JKA provided practical advice which I found really helpful, based on their extensive hands-on experience of the sector. They were always easy to deal with on a personal basis, and in my experience have been prepared to go beyond their brief where necessary.”

Duncan Wilson, Chief Executive, Greenwich Foundation
