Cinta Esmel
Director of Fundraising

Cinta joined SOGB as Director of Fundraising in April 2019. She is working to further develop innovative partnerships that engage and excite SOGB’s donors and add value to the lives of those living with intellectual disabilities. 

Immediately prior to her appointment, Cinta worked as Director of Fundraising for GambleAware. Her previous experience includes fundraising for the Mayor’s Fund for London, the Lord’s Taverners and Oval House Theatre, researching for Tate Britain, working as road manager for the Catalan National Theatre, and producing many major theatre productions and a TV sitcom.  

Cinta is a fully qualified member of the Institute of Fundraising (IoF) and Associate member of the Institute of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability (ICRS). She holds a Master’s Degree in Philanthropic Studies as well as a first-class degree and postgraduate studies in Arts Management.

In her spare time she enjoys treasure hunting in charity shops, pretending that she knows what she is doing when buying vintage buttons and cutting sewing patterns, exploring her local woods while listening to random songs from the 1980s, indulging herself in the guilty pleasure of reading fashion magazines, and finishing her day watching Netflix in bed.
