Partnering for Equity and Racial Justice through
Fundraising, Organizational Strategy and Coaching


 Building relationships is at the heart of fundraising, community engagement and organizational development. My community organizing career began over 20 years ago while serving as a Peace Corps volunteer in South Africa. Since then I've been on a journey to approach philanthropy through a lens of equity and racial justice. Through partnership we can all foster connections and investments in our community.
