Behind the scenes: Meet Mat

With the need for connection being more important than ever before, we’re pleased to share with you some behind-the-scenes action from the ACRF team. Meet Mat Fisher, our Philanthropy & Community Giving Manager

“I’m the Community Giving and Philanthropy Manager, which means I work closely with our small and incredibly awesome Community Engagement team to help our supporters donate to, or fundraise for ACRF.

I am a proud father of three children (aged 2,7 and 10) who outside of work keep my wife and I very busy at our home in the lower Blue Mountains, NSW.

The desire to join ACRF came through two previous jobs where I was working in similar roles at Medical Research Institutes that had received funding from ACRF. Knowing how the organisation operates and seeing first-hand the incredible impact it can have provided me with all the motivation needed to join when the opportunity came up.

When I’m not working, my passions are music, bushwalking and cooking -all of which I do regularly with my family. Having grown up in the 80’s I am a big Star Wars fan and some time ago fulfilled my plan of having two dogs and naming one Luke and the other Leia.”
