Mrs Doris Taylor


Head of Development

Following a successful career in sales, Doris has held a range of fundraising positions within the independent school and charity sectors, raising funds for scholarships, annual funds and campaigns and leading a major multimillion pound capital appeal.

Having joined Harper Adams University in 2018, Doris engages with companies, alumni and Charitable Trusts connecting them directly with the University’s mission ‘To provide world leading higher education and research for the delivery of sustainable food chains and the protection of rural resources for future generations' - either through the provision of scholarships for individual students or through philanthropic investment in University infrastructure and buildings.

Working closely with industry partners, individual benefactors and academic colleagues, Doris and her team have managed to accommodate their specific motivations and requirements which led to a substantial growth of the Scholarship Programme and to significant capital investment. Coming from a farming family, Doris has a good understanding of the sector’s challenges, and she is extremely passionate about supporting young talent at the start of their careers.
