Our founder

As a young fundraiser, Chester developed a passion for the sector in 2008. He learned first hand that a personalised approach was the key to successful street fundraising. It helped people connect with the cause, raise awareness, and sow the seed for new supporter relationships to blossom.

By contrast, Chester felt that online fundraising was transactional. Supporters gave via fundraising websites that felt removed from the cause and put their own brand before the charity’s. The giving experience was generic and uninspiring.

That’s why he founded Enthuse, with a mission to transform digital fundraising by putting charities first.

Chester has been recognised for his work in the sector and was named among the 2018 cohort of Forbes’ 30 under 30 Social Entrepreneurs. He can always be found with his enthusiastic sidekick Capi, our office dog, or occasionally paragliding among the clouds on a day off.
