BOS Australia Fundraising Manager, Pink Elephants Support Network board member, Hello Fundraising copywriter/fundraiser – Jessica Frost has many strings to her bow.
Are you doing what you wanted to do ‘when you grew up’?
I wanted to be a journalist, so not exactly. However, considering my work revolves around telling stories, I think 10-year-old Jessica would be happy.
Tell us about the work you do.
I have lots on the go but most of my time is spent working for Borneo Orangutan Survival (BOS Australia). As a small organisation, there is so much to do. I feel lucky that my role is varied enough that I get to do creative things I love, like copywriting and design, while also putting together our overall fundraising plans and strategy.
My biggest focus for BOS Australia right now is retaining the dedicated supporters who adopt our baby orangutans throughout their rehabilitation process. The second is building awareness of the organisation in Australia – there’s so much room for growth!
