Caroline Ciocca

Caroline Ciocca

Executive Consultant

Caroline Ciocca, Principal of Goldenview Consulting, has over 20 years of leadership experience in the nonprofit sector.  As Principal, Caroline’s mission is clear: to illuminate the path for fellow nonprofit leaders, fostering a transformative mindset that guides organizations with the precision of business acumen.

A prominent C-level leader in Las Vegas’s nonprofit community for nearly 20 years, Caroline’s notable roles include President and CEO of Make-A-Wish Southern Nevada and Director of Corporate Citizenship for Cash America, Inc. Under her leadership, Make-A-Wish Southern Nevada experienced significant year-over-year growth in fundraising, taking the chapter from $1.4 million to $3.9 million. Additionally, she played a key role in securing The Wishing Place, a 7,000 square foot office building generously donated by Allegiant, and which serves as a sanctuary for “Wish Kids”, allowing them to leave their worries about their critical illness at the door and encouraging them to act, play, and dream as carefree kids. 

Caroline also successfully spearheaded Cash America, Inc.’s efforts to innovate and expand their footprint in Southern Nevada, while establishing supportive partnerships with more than 25 nonprofit organizations. Caroline’s leadership experience includes five years as Executive Director of AFAN (Aid for AIDS of Nevada), where she brought strategic business rigor to nonprofit management.  Her achievements have been recognized with awards such as In Business Top 40 Under 40 (2006), Vegas Magazine’s Women Who Give (2010), UNLV Lee Business School Alumni of the Year (2018), and Las Vegas Weekly’s Women of Intrigue (2018).  Caroline earned her Master of Business Administration from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, and her undergraduate degree in marketing from Johnson and Wales University in Providence, Rhode Island.

Informed by a year-long solo expedition she undertook in 2022, Caroline counsels executives to embrace a work-life balance as essential to unlock invaluable insights to embrace change, harness resourcefulness, and master decision-making.  She holds steadfast to the belief that nonprofit careers should invigorate rather than deplete a leader’s mental, physical, and spiritual well-being. Her ethos revolves around channeling talents, extending hands, and igniting community impact.  

Outside of work, Caroline practices what she preaches, enjoying long walks with her rescued Bichon mix named Stella, traveling, exploring the scenic landscapes on her bike and whipping up culinary creations. Her newest passion is exploring the beautiful state of Georgia.  More than just a seasoned leader, Caroline is a luminary helping nonprofit organizations re-imagine their work.  With a track record of milestone accomplishments behind her, Caroline is resolutely dedicated to the art of making meaningful change—within organizations, communities, and leaders.
