Director of Philanthropy
I joined Community Foundation Wales in September 2018. I previously worked for 8 years in the University sector, concentrating predominantly on trusts and foundations fundraising, legacies, major gifts and alumni development. Prior to this I worked as an Associate for Deloitte, specialising in International Tax.
What I do
As Director of Philanthropy, my job mainly revolves around connecting with potential philanthropists, whilst nurturing existing supporters of the Foundation. I maintain a portfolio of legal and financial advisors, working in partnership with them to match donors with the community groups and geographical areas that best suit their clients’ philanthropic wishes.

Major gift acquisition, leaving a legacy, corporate partnerships, attending a networking or knowledge sharing event
Why I love Wales
I moved to Wales from Reading in order to attend Cardiff University, and have never looked back. You’re never more than a few miles from the coast, countryside, mountains and lakes, plus the food scene has rocketed in quality in recent years.
