Gayle Roberts
Fundraising for Nonprofits

At the age of six, I had my first taste of fundraising — hosting a Muscular Dystrophy Association Carnival, complete with pin the tail on the donkey. Now, as a professional fundraiser, I draw on 30 years of nonprofit management experience and for-profit business ownership.

I have helped raise over $125,000,000 for San Francisco Bay Area good causes.

Working across race, class, age, gender, sexuality, and ability, I aim to foster a world that embraces people for who they are and encourages them to live their dreams.
