Carol Beattie

After more than 30 years of living in Los Altos, and raising a family, while working on the Peninsula and South Bay, Carol moved to Healdsburg in March 2014.

Carol’s careers have spanned from administration of justice to fundraising, most recently working at her alma mater, San Jose State University. SJSU entered into a comprehensive campaign in 2008, where she was the sole development director for the College of Science. Her work helped realize 90% of the College’s campaign goal.

A board member of the Healdsburg Forever affiliate of the Community Foundation since 2016, Carol chaired the Growth Committee, in which capacity she co-created a growth strategy with the committee, and led the tactical outreach to prospective new donors and ambassadors. She began her role as Chair of Healdsburg Forever affiliate in January 2019.

Carol’s two adult children, Tierney and James, live in Seattle and San Francisco respectively. Carol is proud of her children’s developing footsteps in philanthropy, supporting causes as they grow their interests and careers.
