Ellaine Hislop  EMFIA CFRE

Fundraising & Philanthropy Supervisor

Surf Life Saving Western Australia

Ellaine Hislop has worked in the not-for-profit sector for over 20 years as a fundraiser. Being able to help organisations meet their mission and contribute to a better world has been a driving force behind her decision to make fundraising her career. Ellaine believes that helping generous supporters connect with a cause they feel passionate about is the pleasure of being a fundraiser.


Ellaine’s passion in the not-for-profit sector began at a NZ Surf Life Saving organisation. She is currently back on familiar ground as Fundraising Supervisor at Surf Life Saving Western Australia, to establish their new State based fundraising program.


In the time between these two roles, Ellaine has worked with various causes – including animal health rescue and welfare, education, and medical research organisations.


Ellaine’s passion lies with smaller for purpose organisations. In particular assisting them to develop and grow development program strategies including individual giving, bequests, major gifts, stewardship, communications, and donor journeys.
