Krishan joined Muscular Dystrophy UK (MDUK) in 2015 as the Challenge Events Manager and became Head of Events in 2019. Before MDUK, Krishan worked at disability charity Scope as a challenge events fundraising executive and prior to that his early events career and higher education was in the sports industry.
The fundraising Events portfolio at MDUK covers a variety of Special Events, third party Challenge Events and owned Challenge Events. MDUK’s Events work very closely with Major Donors and Corporates, so Krishan has strong experience in these areas of fundraising which have helped leverage performances of Events over the years. As Head of Events Krishan has steered the team and income stream through a turbulent period during the pandemic and in 2021 delivered a full portfolio of live events. Despite the 2021 being very uncertain at times, the live events portfolio has hit budget targets and, in some cases, setting new fundraising records for the charity.
