Claire Rooney

MRF Major Gifts Manager

I look after the individuals and trusts and foundations who make generous gifts to support our medical research portfolio, our life-saving medical information work, awareness raising and support services in the UK as well as our programmatic work in Africa.

I am also responsible for working with people who wish to leave a gift in their Will, and for managing the administration of legacies.

I’ve been working in fundraising since 2012, with major philanthropists, trusts and foundations. Before that I was a private client solicitor, advising high net worth clients on Wills, trusts and tax planning. I love working in the charity sector, and find it really rewarding to see the impact of the work that I’m fundraising for, and it’s a real pleasure to work with an organisation like MRF.

If you are a Trustee or Grants Manager who would like to find out more about our work, or an individual who would like to make a significant donation, I would love to hear from you. I am also the first point of contact if you are considering leaving us a legacy in your Will, and for solicitors dealing with Will preparation and estate administration.
