Operations Assistant, Philanthropy and Gift Planning
Why do you do what you do?
I do what I do to uplift those around me, being mindful of the privilege that I have been afforded in my life. I have always been involved in community impact and volunteer work since I was little, volunteering at the SF-Marin Food Bank back when I was just 10 years old. This work is not just a job to me but is an important part of my life.
What drew you to the foundation?
Growing up in the Bay Area, I knew of the prevalence of the impactful, local community foundations, like the Marin Community Foundation and East Bay Community Foundation. The San Francisco Foundation was particularly intriguing because of the equity framework that permeates all aspects of the organization. I have a deep interest in JEDI work and was excited about the opportunity to leverage and grow that interest at the foundation.
How would you describe your role?
I support the Philanthropy and Gift Planning (PGP) team by processing donations and gifts, optimizing our Salesforce CRM by creating reports and entering data, and ensuring that technological operations run smoothly for the other members of PGP and other associated teams.
