Originally from America, with a PhD from Cambridge University, she has a particular affinity for funding programmes designed to bringing equity of opportunity for all people and protecting the environment.

Pam comes to Global Philanthropic with over 20 years experience in building powerful fundraising teams and global partnerships. Since 2017 she and the team have advised private foundations and philanthropists, universities, charities and NGOs including: CIPS Foundation, an anonymous private foundation, ActionAid, Cambridge Judge Business School, Lucy Cavendish College Cambridge, Nature Kenya, the British Council, The Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, Saffron Hall, Millfield School, BirdLife International and Rand Europe.  Working collaboratively, we have created bespoke narratives to test the feasibility and positioning of fundraising propositions, developed cultivation and stewardship plans, gift acceptance policies and interviewed hundreds of HNWI giving clients a clear, focused and successful fundraising strategy and operation.
Her experience and passions are in building strategies and securing funding for Higher Education, Conservation, Climate Action and Music. Prior to joining Global Philanthropic, she was Director of Development for the RSPB, creating their first high-value fundraising programme; their first ethical gifts acceptance policy and procedure; and their first seven-figure gift.
As Director of Development at ARK she led the reorganisation of the Development Team, shaping new fundraising strategies and adapting event-led fundraising to one focused on donor values.
Prior to that, Pam was brought in as Head of Fundraising at the Cambridge University Development Office, to recruit and lead the fundraising team for the University’s historic 800th Anniversary Campaign. This £1 billion campaign was the first of its kind in the UK; working in close collaboration with senior leadership at the University, Pam and her Development team and the Colleges surpassed the £1 billion target two years ahead of schedule.
Pam founded and subsequently taught the MBA Fundraising course at the University of Cambridge Judge Business School and is a guest lecturer on strategic fundraising for the MPhil Conservation Leadership course at the Cambridge Conservation Campus.
