Caroline Gellatly is a major gifts fundraiser, with a decade’s experience of working with individuals making five- and six-figure donations to causes as varied as prostate cancer and youth homelessness. She is a passionate supporter of women and girls’ education, health, and reproductive rights.

Caroline began her career in fundraising as a Telephone Campaign caller during her studies at the University of Cambridge, and loved chatting to people to raise money for an inspiring cause so much that she’s been doing it ever since! Joining the Development Office at Gonville and Caius College (Cambridge), she fundraised gifts of up to £25,000 and ran the most successful Oxbridge telephone campaign to date. She then moved to Prostate Cancer UK to manage the Pioneers programme, securing gifts of up to £100,000 towards vital cancer research.

Caroline volunteers as Fundraising Manager for My Body Back Project supporting survivors of sexual violence (recently devising and implementing the Christmas 2017 social media fundraising campaign), as a personal statement adviser at the Girls’ Networkand as a trained Workshop Facilitator for school groups with the Fawcett Society. She is excited by opportunities to empower women and younger donors in philanthropy.
