Gaynor Humphreys has been a CPAG member for well over 20 years and joined the trustee board at the AGM in 2010. While all her working life has involved her in jobs concerned with social justice, it was five years at Family Action (then FWA) when her work was specifically about campaigning on poverty, using the organisation's experience of grantmaking to individuals in need and supported housing for poor, older people.
Gaynor’s most recent job was as Director of London Funders, the cross-sector network of organisations funding London’s voluntary and community sector. Immediately before that she was Director of WINGS, a global network of associations of grantmakers and organisations promoting philanthropy (then based in Brussels). From 1993 for ten years she was Chief Executive of Community Foundation Network. Previous jobs were mainly in the voluntary sector, in urban and rural settings, in local VCS development, community work and grantmaking.
Gaynor has retired from full-time work and is giving time through trusteeship of several national, regional and local foundations and other voluntary organisations.
