Luke has over 15 years’ experience in fundraising. He started his career as a fundraiser at university and worked his way from the ground up to senior fundraising and marketing management roles in Australia. In his time in Australia, he was GM for Australia’s largest phone agency, launched a start-up corporate giving platform which became the fastest growing platform for employee giving in Australia, and setup a new branch of a fundraising agency in NZ. His most recent role was based out of Singapore, where he was Marketing and Fundraising Director for WWF. In his time there, he grew WWF’s marketing team from one of the smallest teams in the network to one of the largest in the world with 100 staff. He doubled revenue in 2 years also contributing to regional growth in face to face fundraising revenue in offices like the Philippines, Malaysia and India. In 2018 Luke setup Omniraise with a vision to raise the bar for fundraising in Asia and build a next generation agency that will attract the best and brightest to become fundraisers and markteters for the NGO sector in Asia.
Why I work for Omniraise? NGOs are looking to increase their impact and raise more funds than ever for their cause, but there’s a lack of experienced marketing agencies in Asia to provide that expertise and capacity to generate funds at scale. Most of the fundraising dollars have been raised from Europe and America in the past, but Asia is the next big thing for fundraising. At the same time I can see young people yearn for more meaning and purpose in their careers, and I see fundraising as one of the best careers to meet that burning desire for purpose and to make a difference.
What I love most about working at Omniraise? First and foremost, it’s our people –I love seeing people grow and achieve great things for our partners. Everyone shares a sense of purpose and fun. I also love the diversity of people we can work with across our offices in Asia. Seeing the impact our work creates for our clients keeps us inspired every day.

Aaron’s passion for fundraising started in 2006 when he joined a fundraising agency in Sydney, Australia. He quickly progressed from a fundraiser to coach, team leader and beyond. Within 4 years he was managing up to 100 staff, with 12 direct reports across two countries (Australia and New Zealand) and achieving some of the strongest Telemarketing results across these markets. After 10 years of working in fundraising in Australia/New Zealand and obtaining the role of General Manager for Telefundraising Operations, Aaron decided to broaden his experience and move to London, UK. It was here where Aaron fine-tuned his skills working with Amnesty International UK and most recently, holding the position of Global Telemarketing Specialist for Amnesty International Secretariat.
As Global TM Specialist for AI Secretariat, Aaron worked across markets in Europe, Americas and Asia implementing new TM strategies, launching Inhouse teams and focused on the continued improvement and increased performance of Telemarketing as a whole, this was achieved by working closely with all channels – Digital, DRTV and F2F. Most notable due to Aaron’s direction and input, multiple markets in Amnesty International improved their Telemarketing performance with their largest market (USA) tripling results and revenue compared to historical performance..
In 2018, Aaron and Luke set up Omniraise with the determination to raise the bar for fundraising in Asia. Supporting organizations to meet their growth goals, allowing them to focus on delivering the highest possible impact.
Why I work for Omniraise? After working with Amnesty International across multiple regions I found that Asia had a clear gap for quality fundraising agencies. I wanted to create and organization that could support all charities in meeting their growth goals and strengthen proven channels that continue to allow charities to deliver effective
impact. On top of this, I can support the next generation on fundraisers. I originally developed my fundraising skills working for an agency and was able to use these skills directly within an organization/cause I care deeply about. I hope fundraisers who work with Omniraise eventually go on to help strengthen the entire sector with the skills they develop here.
What I love most about working at Omniraise? For me, there are three key areas I love about Omniraise:
1. The fact that I come to work and raise funds for some of the best causes. I feel like I can directly make an impact by increasing the reach of amazing organizations.
2. I support the growth and development of talented individuals, seeing them develop their professional and personal life. It’s amazing to see the transformation people go through as fundraisers.
3. The team culture and sense of purpose from everyone at OmniRaise is inspiring and continually motivating. Being part of this energy gives me constant motivation to push and develop my own skills.”
