The German Fundraising Association (DFRV) has appointed not-for-profit (NPO) expert and human rights activist Larissa Probst as its new managing director.
Probst succeeds Arne Peper, who has returned to active fundraising after five years with the association’s management.
From 2009 to 2015, Probst volunteered as a member of the executive board of Amnesty International Deutschland, and most recently was a full-time director of the international youth foundation, Schü-ler Helfen Leben Foundation, leading teams in Berlin, Sarajevo and Kosovo. On the organisation’s annual Social Day, more than 80,000 young people took part, raising more than 1.2 million euros. The campaign has since spread to other European nations, including Italy, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Belgium, Denmark.
“As managing director of DFRV, I want to stand up for a strong culture of giving. My goal is to create better conditions for fundraising in Germany together with my team and all members of the association and to further strengthen the image of fundraisers in the public and in politics.”
Commenting on her appointment, Martin Dodenhoeft, Chairman of DFRV said:
“With Ms. Probst, we have a dedicated NPO expert with strong entrepreneurial qualities in senior management – a perfect mix for leading Europe’s second largest association for fundraising.”
