Underwood takes new role at Save the Children
Save the Children has appointed Caroline Underwood as its first director of philanthropy and partnerships, a new post created in response to the emergence of a new generation of 'hands-on' philanthropists and increased interest from corporate donors.
Underwood, who will start in March, has for five years been chief executive of the Philanthropy Company, which provides advice to not-for-profit clients in the cultural and higher education sectors.
“Charities need to change,” said Jasmine Whitbread, chief executive of Save the Children. “Gone are the days when we would just take the money and run. Donors want to be involved in the decisions that we make with their money, and our aim is to inspire them to join us in our fight to make dramatic change for children. We must tap into the expertise, experience and generosity of these modern hands-on philanthropists, corporates and trusts.”
“Caroline will be a real boost to our board of directors, bringing a different set of skills from a different sector.”
