With Daryl Upsall International, Sonya helps nonprofit organisations with her in-depth understanding of the ways INGOs can truly bring about global growth. She understands not only the potential of most global markets but knows how both the national entity and the international support team need to function to be effective in growing global income.
Sonya Burke has twenty years fundraising experience, managing Individual Giving programmes in her native market, the UK, and undertaking senior national and international roles for organisations such as Médecins Sans Frontieres, Save the Children and Amnesty International in Europe, Africa and the Americas.
As Regional Head of Market Development for Save the Children, she launched Individual Giving in Colombia and Mexico and led the local change management process required to restructure the organisations ready for growth.
She joined Amnesty International as Global Head of Individual Giving with the aim of revamping the fundraising investment fund to drive global growth. Her new strategy introduced robust criteria for investments across channels and market types and resulted in significant growth for Amnesty in several markets, such as Taiwan, Argentina and the US. In the past few years has been supporting Fundraising Directors, CEOs and Boards to develop the right structure, capacities and culture to bring about real growth.
