Anne Hyde Dunsmore

Vice President of Board Relations

Anne Hyde Dunsmore’s thirty-five year plus career in fundraising has spanned the development of new technologies and fundraising strategies. Always on the cutting edge of blending these technologies with business, Anne has developed one of the most comprehensive, technologically advanced fundraising operations in the country.

After her early work on political campaigns in the late 70’s, Anne founded Capital Campaigns, Inc. which has consulted with over 300 candidates, initiatives, referendums, businesses and charities including Muhammad Ali, UCLA, UCI, LA County Museum of Art, as well as numerous campaigns for President of the United States, Governor, US Senate, the Republican National Committee, National Republican Senatorial Committee, National Republican Congressional Committee and Republican Governors Association.

Anne has set new records for charitable giving, having served as Director of Development for UCLA Medical Sciences (averaging over $180 million/year) where, in addition to programmatic needs, they raised $1.2 billion to build two new hospitals as well as additional medical, academic and research facilities. The naming concept as well as funding strategy of the current Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center was designed by Anne during this time, when she also consulted on the naming of the David Geffen School of Medicine. Currently, she works with the Orange County Gang Reduction and Intervention Partnership (GRIP) and the Los Angeles Homeland Security Advisory Council.
