President, Decades of nonprofit work left me with the awareness that time is a commodity too precious to waste.
I have a talent for developing efficient and elegant solutions and processes that lead to results. I like to get things done right. What gets me excited is providing the building blocks that allow nonprofits to create and deepen connections, not just completing donor transactions.
When I am not in a client meeting, I’m traveling with my history-loving husband and going on New York City adventures with my two intrepid teenagers.
Development Consultant, A common theme became apparent after I worked for several small nonprofits: a struggle to balance artistic work with the necessary fundraising to support the mission. I love being able to elevate a nonprofit’s development while alleviating some of the stress that often comes along with that work.
I have worked with several small dance companies in the tri-state area, providing support in grantwriting, finance, production, and special events. I worked as Development and Executive Assistant at the STREB Lab for Action Mechanics and Program Assistant at the Doris Duke Performing Artists Awards all while continuing my dance practice.
I’m energized by learning and organizing. When I’m not consulting with clients, I’m likely reading or enchanted by visual and performance art, fashion, interior design, and architecture.
Development Consultant, I love working closely with solicitors and fundraisers to provide succinct and practical information that supports your organization’s fundraising goals. Hearing how a client is able to activate their Donorly research and take a more mindful approach to fundraising really gets me jazzed.
I have experience working at arts organizations of all shapes and sizes, from an international arts festival in Charleston, to a Tony Award-winning theatre in Seattle, to an off-Broadway theatre in New York. I also spent several years working with a large human services agency in New York City.
When I’m not at work you can find me volunteering at New York Cares or the ASPCA.
Director of Business Development / Development Consultant, I draw on my experience working in Development for a large nonprofit and leading a small one to fuel a passion for seeing mission driven organizations succeed. At Donorly, I get the opportunity to provide critical services which give our unique clients a torch to better see in the dark. Each organization is surrounded by individuals ready and willing to help them achieve their goals, and I love being part of a company that sheds light on them.
When I’m not helping to solve fundraising challenges for the wide spectrum of nonprofits we speak to, I enjoy gardening, juggling, and freewheeling in the mountains with my wife and kids.
Development Consultant, I began working in the arts and humanities field during college and never looked back. My broad interests led me to a variety of museums and cultural organizations in New York, Washington, D.C., and Rome, Italy. I have worked on fundraising initiatives and grant-funded projects at institutions such as United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and Bard Graduate Center. I have also worked on Curatorial, Educational, and Collections Management projects at The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Museum of Jewish Heritage. In 2014, I received my Master’s degree in Decorative Arts, Design History, and Material Culture, with a focus on the digital humanities, at Bard Graduate Center.
At Donorly, I enjoy working with each of our unique clients to push donor relationship development to the next level. Donorly brings a unique combination of knowledge, experience, and fresh ideas to help organizations thrive.
When I’m not at work you can find me reading, cooking (and eating!), playing various stringed musical instruments, and hanging out with my family.
Senior Researcher, Donorly is a vital service that uses the entire gamut of fundraising tools to get you the tailored, actionable information you need to fundraise successfully in an increasingly data-rich environment.
When I’m not researching a prospect’s history of charitable giving or uncovering potential board connections, I’m probably copyediting, leathercrafting, or re-reading Moby-Dick.
Research Associate, The amount of information online can seem overwhelming at times. Using numerous state-of-the-art research tools, we at Donorly can help our client organizations sift through all of that to find useful and actionable information.
When I’m not doing research, I’m almost certainly still on the computer, trying to understand cryptography, computer software, or re-watching a movie for the third time.
Senior Consultant, I believe that working closely with a nonprofit and helping them get a leg up with accurate, thorough research is paramount to the organization’s long-term success. I love to see the right donors connected with the right organization and seeing how both sides can flourish under those circumstances.
I have worked in fundraising at French Institute Alliance Française, Manhattan Theatre Club, Merricat’s Castle School, and Yorkville Community School.
When I am not elaborating on donor research I can be found slathering sunscreen on two small children, practicing the ever-elusive handstand in yoga, and taking in as much culture in New York City as time will allow.
Development Consultant, Everyone needs backup sometimes. Donorly's services are designed to provide organizations of all sizes the information and insights they need to take their fundraising to the next level. My career in nonprofit management has involved everything from public television, to Jewish communal service, to the performing arts, and I am energized by the uniqueness of each of Donorly's clients.
When I am not developing tailored fundraising solutions for clients, I am developing and producing new plays, hosting dinner parties, and taking long walks through the city.
Research Associate, I’ve experienced the impact of donor research within an organization first-hand and love seeing the way Donorly empowers people to do amazing work. Our research processes provide nonprofit leaders and fundraisers the information they need to be nimble and successful.
I have experience in arts programming, marketing, and development. Before moving to NYC, I worked with Actors Theatre of Louisville, Radio Free Lexington, and the Naco-Bisbee Mural Project.
When I’m not uncovering prospects or investigating gala attendee connections, I’m making experimental music, volunteering for arts organizations, and planning future global travel.
