CBE for UCL Geography graduate

David Emerson, who graduated from UCL Geography in 1972, was awarded a CBE in the 2015 New Year’s Honours List for Services to Philanthropy and Charitable Giving.

Since 2003, David has been the Chief Executive of the Association of Charitable Foundations, the professional membership association for the UK’s charitable trusts and grant making foundations.

The ACF was formed in 1989 and became a charitable company limited by guarantee at the beginning of 2005. It now has over 300 member organisations, including large independent foundations, local and community trusts, family trusts, corporate foundations and broadcasting appeals, as well as organisations involved in research and policy work, venture philanthropy and social investment.

David’s previous experience has included theatrical management and production in the West End, running the trade association for regional theatre in the UK, working with the National Council for Voluntary Organizations, and with Rural Community Councils.
