Serving San Francisco, East Bay, and Silicon Valley
2015 marks the 20th Anniversary of Financial Woman of the Year Event and 30 years of giving with $2M awarded in Scholarships. Our organization’s Scholarship Program is supported by leading Bay Area businesses.
Carrie Dolan, Chief Financial Officer of Lending Club, has been selected by Financial Women of San Francisco as the 2015 Financial Woman of the Year. This award recognizes Dolan for her outstanding leadership and achievement in her various finance roles.
Carrie joined Lending Club as its first CFO in 2010. Over the last five years, she has helped build the company into the world’s largest online marketplace connecting borrowers and investors. During her tenure, operating revenue increased from $2M in 3Q 2010 to $81M in 1Q 2015, while employees increased from 40 to over 975 over the same period. Last year, she managed Lending Club’s IPO, one of the top 10 U.S. based Internet IPOs of all time.
“We are thrilled to have Carrie represent our organization as Financial Woman of the Year,” said Tracy Teale, president of FWSF. “Carrie is both extremely accomplished in her own career and enormously committed to a future with more women in financial fields. Her efforts to inspire young women to pursue their education and dreams are in line with our organization’s goals. She’s an outstanding role model for our scholarship recipients and the entire FWSF community.” Read full press release.

FWSF celebrates awarding more than $2 million in scholarship funds to deserving women who are pursuing finance related degrees (business, economics, accounting, other) at accredited universities in the Bay Area. Scholarships awarded by the FWSF Scholarship Fund are made possible through the generosity of FWSF sponsors and the proceeds from the Financial Woman of the Year Luncheon.
In 2014 the FWSF Scholarship Fund awarded a total of $90,000 in scholarships to seven graduate students and four undergraduate students representing eight different Bay Area colleges and universities. Awards were presented to these promising students at our annual scholarship luncheon on June 5th at the City Club of San Francisco.
