PROFILE

Joanna has spent the last twenty years working with people to help them realise their philanthropic goals; giving as much as they can, whilst having the greatest impact on social good. She brings the experience of working with thousands of donors and families and was a commentator on major donor philanthropy in the 2017 Sunday Times Rich List.

Her experience embraces international banking with UBS Wealth Management in London and Dubai, and fundraising for some of the UK's most exciting charities: Impetus-the Private Equity Foundation, The Brooke and Forum for the Future.

“My passion is in using my experience to help our private clients shape and deliver on their hopes for social change. Being a philanthropist is possibly the best thing a person can do with their money, and certainly the most rewarding.”

Joanna holds a degree in Geography from the University of Manchester and qualifications in both finance and fundraising. Joanna is also a Trustee of Brook Young People.
