A Note from Rebecca.

Hi Everyone,

I’m Rebecca Rushe and I founded DRIVE Fundraising and Marketing in 2021. DRIVE is Direct Marketing for Charities and Small Businesses.

I have over 15 years’ experience as a senior fundraising and marketing manager in the Irish Charity Sector and have significant experience creating and managing local, national and international fundraising and marketing campaigns. DRIVE is based in the Midlands and offers affordable solutions to charities and companies for bespoke strategic marketing planning, customer campaigns and experiences.

I enjoy staying up to date with the latest trends and discussions when it comes to fundraising and marketing and I am a lifelong learner, regularly updating my skills. For me continuous education fulfils my own personal need to grow and develop as a marketing professional.

As a certified Member of Mailchimp and Co., DRIVE provides Mailchimp’s new all in one smart marketing platform services. Contact us for more information.

In these challenging times it’s important to maintain perspective and know that as fundraising and marketing adjusts to new technology expedited by the arrival of Covid 19, DRIVE is here to help charities and small businesses adapt, I’m looking forward to working with you!

Warm regards,

Rebecca Rushe
