Caroline Danks


Caroline is a Director for LarkOwl, a consultancy specialising in high value fundraising and commercial income for charities and non-profits. Since setting up her own in 2016, Caroline has raised over £4 million for a variety of capital appeals and has provided strategic advice to several charities in the health, hospice, environment, arts, heritage and policy sectors. Caroline is also a speaker, blogger and trainer, creating two self study online training courses for aspiring trust and major gift fundraisers respectively. She publishes weekly articles in LarkOwl's newsletter 'The Nest Egg'. In 2019, 2020 and 2021, LarkOwl published popular studies on the return on investment in UK fundraising which are designed to support decision makers in setting realistic and achievable targets. In her spare time, Caroline is a wannabe mermaid and spends as much time swimming in the sea as the weather allows and tending her allotment. She loves riding rollercoasters with her kids, early morning journaling, and the satisfaction of completing a perfect parallel parking manoeuvre.
