Ilene Aveling

Ilene Aveling, Development ManagerIlene has a strong professional background in development and has held Business Development roles in Perth and London.  Her philanthropic and sponsorship career started when she was employed as the Business Development Manager at the Perth International Arts Festival. After a short stint overseas, Ilene started her own fundraising consultancy in Perth, working with a range of not-for-profit organisations.
Ilene’s initial work on the capital campaign involves a great deal of research, working closely with the School’s Archivist and the Old Guildfordians Association. She is also eager to meet current donors and cultivate new supporters.
“This is a remarkable place to work.  It’s a workplace where the staff embody the values they are instilling in the students. The School is both traditional and progressive and is not just about the academics; but rounding and grounding the students.”
Outside of work Ilene is a keen writer who hopes to be published. She also enjoys bush walking, cooking and gardening.
If you have any interest in being involved in the capital campaign for boarding, please contact Ilene on 9377 8554 or
