Let us introduce you to Jirka Wirth

Jirka Wirth

Senior Consultant

Jirka worked exclusively in the non-profit sector since 2003 in different roles as a fundraising and marketing professional. Starting in smaller NPOs in Germany, his way led him from a team leader at MSF to the role of fundraising director for MSF in Germany and Brazil. Within MSF he also build the infrastructure for global data intelligence before he took his last role as fundraising director for IRC Germany, to build up a fundraising program from scratch.

Jirka has the experience of working as a director of multi-disciplinary teams and in providing support and facilitation to NPO boards and directors. He is in particular experienced in individual giving programs across all relevant channels. Jirka is a strong advocate for data driven decisions.

As a consultant for Daryl Upsall International, Jirka supports organisations in the development of fundraising strategies and expansion into new markets by assessing market potential, developing market entry strategies and risk assessments, and identifying investment requirements since 2021. Jirka also works with clients to assess internal readiness for growth and reviewing their existing fundraising programmes and product portfolios and provides advice on refining their strategies to secure long term sustainability and growth. Jirka also brings a long experience from the beginning of his professional career in the business sector, working as marketing manager for different companies. Especially the philosophy of client focused product and campaign development helped him later to build successful donor centric fundraising programs.

He has a business degree, specialized in marketing and HR and a certificate as fundraising manager from the German Fundraising Academy. Beside his mother language German, he speaks fluent English and some Portuguese.
