[Episode 80] How to market a charity with Donna White, senior head of digital marketing at The Prince’s Trust

We got the trumpets out for a royal fanfare and prepared ourselves to perform our best curtsy on the Sparkle and Thrive podcast this week. Why? Because we rolled out the red carpet for a guest with a royal connection 👑.

Donna White is the senior head of digital marketing at The Prince’s Trust, the charity founded by The Prince of Wales in 1976. And with a career in PR and seven years at the Trust under her belt, you bet she knows a thing or two about charity comms.

So we dragged her away from uploading videos to TikTok (among other things) to get to the nitty-gritty of what it takes to market a charity in 2021. And, because she’s a generous sort at heart, she’s shared a whole heap of advice that we think is more valuable than the Crown Jewels 😂.
