Liz Elliott, Foundation Development Director
Liz oversees Foundation Development Office activity at King's and is well placed to do so, as she is an Old Vigornian herself (Co 82-84). She joined the office in September 2016 following a successful career in the hospitality industry. The King's School Foundation Development Office has two clear aims: in the first instance, we endeavour to create, maintain and enhance the strong links between the school and its wider community via a number of means, whether this be in the form of regular reunions of our former pupils and staff, pupil/OV career talks, social events, school lectures or consultation groups. Secondly, the Development Office works with key individuals, who wish to make a real difference by donating towards identified projects for the school. Going forwards, our focus is on building an Enduring Fund to provide bursary places across the school for pupils, who would not otherwise be able to attend King's. In doing so, the whole school and its community will experience the benefits. King's is a very special place, as witnessed and affirmed by so many of our community and our work in the Development Office is to ensure that our alumni and wider community continue that there will always be a place for them at King's.

Alice Brunt, Head of Alumni Communications
Alice joined the Foundation Development Office in 2012 and has worked on several successful projects, including the recent Space Campaign for the remarkable Keyes Building. She is responsible for fostering alumni relations that will build and strengthen relationships between the School and its community of over 14,00 former pupils, parents, staff and donors in order to maximise alumni interest in and engagement with King's.
