“I graduated from the Hornstein program in 2016. I am now the Director of Annual Giving at Mayyim Hayyim. I ensure that fundraising stays on track throughout the year so that Mayyim Hayyim can keep its doors open to all Jews and those becoming Jewish and continue to tear down barriers to Jewish life, whether those barriers be physical, invisible, or financial. More specifically, I help create the annual fundraising plan and, in addition to cultivating and soliciting my own portfolio of donors, I provide resources and support to board members, development committee members, and the executive director. I also oversee all communications, whether fundraising-related or otherwise.”
