Director, Portfolio Fundraising Strategies
Emily supports the portfolio in their efforts to build successful and sustainable fundraising strategies that are tailored to each organization’s model and unique strengths. She is a whole-hearted non-profit leader with a lifelong commitment to equity and poverty alleviation. Emily dedicated the first two decades of her career to Summer Search, a national youth development organization that envisions a world where young people can fulfill their potential and lead families and communities to thrive. Emily’s interest in working at Summer Search was sparked by her experience attending Central, a Philadelphia public high school, where she watched her classmates break through barriers of poverty, access, and racism to graduate and go onto college. Emily graduated with a BA in African American Studies with a concentration in Sociology from Wesleyan University.
