UK Community Foundations has appointed Rosemary Macdonald as CEO. She joins UKCF permanently from Wiltshire Community Foundation of which she was CEO for twelve years. She has been acting as interim CEO of UKCF since March.

Rosemary Macdonald said:

“I am looking forward to leading UKCF. I am so proud of the work community foundations did in quickly getting funds to those who needed it on a local level when coronavirus took its toll. UKCF has a long history of distributing funds to people in need in society – and that work has never been more important. UKCF plays an important role in the charity sector in speaking up for the smaller groups and organisations who otherwise struggle to be heard.

“We will champion local philanthropy, bringing more resources to local communities as we enter challenging fiscal times. We will continue to be the voice of local communities in national forums, providing insight through our local lens.

“We will continue to develop our members’ skills and capacity, learning from experts across the UK and internationally. We will also put diversity, equality and inclusion at the heart of what we do, providing training for UKCF and its members to understand the needs of marginalised communities to ensure that we deliver equitable grantmaking.”

Dr Jerome Booth, UKCF Board Chair, said:

“We are very fortunate to have Rosemary join UKCF in a permanent capacity after being the interim CEO since March. She brings enormous experience of the community foundation network and a passion for the work. Rosemary performed extremely effectively in what has been a high-pressure period as the network responds to the coronavirus pandemic across the UK.”
