Britton said of her appointment: “Having spent years helping Australians realise the potential that technology holds in building powerful networks to help individuals support the issues that matter to them, it excites me incredibly to help continue this work with GoFundMe.

GoFundMe CEO, Rob Solomon, stated: “It’s incredibly exciting to put Nicola in the driver’s seat at such a period of rapid expansion for GoFundMe. We have witnessed huge momentum as Australians have taken fundraising into their own hands, fundraising and donating to important issues like crisis relief for farmers or providing financial support for families going through a difficult time.

“We’re only just getting started and Nicola’s background in supporting innovative tech businesses, campaigning and policy will help us fast-track our ambitions in the market.”
