Lisa Russel


Tony Elischer Foundation


With nearly 30 years’ experience in the voluntary sector, Lisa has managed a diverse fundraising portfolio. Her experience has been gained as both a senior fundraising practitioner and a consultant. Lisa is interested in developing diverse teams and mentoring individuals with a particular focus on future leaders in our sector. Lisa met Tony Elischer in the late 1990’s and he became an informal mentor to her. It was clear that he was committed to investing time in the development of her career, so Lisa is thrilled to be able to continue that legacy as both a mentor and the Director of the Foundation.
