Ian Lawton MFIA
National Planned Giving Manager
Greenpeace Australia Pacific
Ian’s first job was working as a youth worker on the streets of inner Sydney. He has always been passionate about bearing witness to injustice and supporting the underdog and he has led humanitarian organisations in Australia, New Zealand and America.
In the US he headed up a church and had to learn quickly about fundraising when the GFC hit during 2008-09. Despite difficult economic conditions, Ian led a successful capital fundraising campaign that became his introduction to major giving and bequest fundraising.
Ian has also worked as a personal coach and social media marketing consultant. Since starting at Greenpeace in 2015, Ian has helped to kickstart the bequest program. In 2017 Greenpeace had over 200 confirmed new pledgers. He was named a ‘Mover and Shaker’ in F&P magazine in 2017.
