360Giving Chief Executive, Tania Cohen awarded MBE
We are delighted that our Chief Executive, Tania Cohen, has been awarded an MBE in today’s honours in recognition of her “services to charity and social justice”, including for her work leading 360Giving.
Since joining 360Giving in 2020 in a challenging time during the pandemic, Tania has led the organisation through significant growth and development, including more than doubling the number of funders sharing their data to 255 and more than quadrupling the value of grants published using the 360Giving Data Standard to £213bn. She led the creation of the ambitious strategy and the step-change needed for implementation, contributing to our vision of making grantmaking more informed, effective and strategic.
Tania has driven the development of the DEI Data Standard, supporting more equitable grantmaking practices, amongst supporting other collaboration between funders to maximise effective giving.
Commenting on her honour, Tania says
“I feel privileged to do the work that I do and lucky to have had the opportunity to work with so many amazing charities and colleagues. This honour is in recognition of all the committed and passionate people who inspire and motivate me to do the work I do every day.
Thank you to my fantastic team at 360Giving and the many brilliant people I’ve worked with over the years. I’m so proud to be part of this awesome sector. Thank you for your support.”
As well as her work with 360Giving, Tania has over 25 years of working and volunteering in the sector including previous roles at London Youth, Institute of Fundraising, Association of Chairs, Charity Finance Group, Charities Evaluation Services, Volunteer Reading Help, British Red Cross, Shelter, and Crisis, and Trustee and/or senior committee roles at Womankind Worldwide, Women at Risk, Fawcett Society, BBC Children in Need London & South East Regional Advisory Committee, and Emmaus. She is currently a volunteer for Migrateful UK, amongst other community initiatives.
