Pam is a non-profit executive with 35 years of experience in capital campaign fundraising, annual fundraising, marketing, public relations, management and television production.
Pam likes to say that “fundraising is a team sport” and knows that no accomplishment is achieved on one’s own, but accomplished alongside a group of dedicated individuals and with a connection to God’s guidance. With that said…
Most recently, Pam successfully completed the Samueli Academy $72M capital campaign in March of 2022.
Prior to that, Pam was the President of Pretend City Children’s Museum, taking the capital campaign from a stall and jumpstarting it, raising $12M, then to opening of the museum.
Pam started her fundraising career as a consultant with the Robert. B. Sharp company where she worked on the Santa Margarita High School capital campaign, the Irvine Barclay Theatre capital campaign, the Our Lady Queen of Angels campaign and the Discovery Science Center campaign.
Pam spent 12 years, in various roles with Discovery Science Center. As a consultant she helped the organization raise the first $5M of its $24M goal, then closed the campaign with a $2M gift. She also helped the organization open two preview facilities and the DiscoveryCube on the 5 freeway.
Pam has had a meaningful career of raising money while working alongside generous philanthropists and non-profit leaders.
