Jennifer’s role: I manage a portfolio of fundholders, supporting their philanthropic goals and the impact of their investments in the community. I also oversee the Foundation’s scholarship program, building strong relationships with donors, enhancing process efficiencies, and creating an experience that is enriching for both students and fundholders.
What brought Jennifer to the Foundation: I am so excited to work for an organization that inspires philanthropy, to collaborate with hard working and passionate team members who truly care about our community, and to connect with and lend my support to donors who are investing in making Austin a better place for everyone.
What Jennifer did before: I graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a degree in Communication Studies. For more than a decade, I’ve gained experience in strategic marketing and communications, outreach and education, community engagement, and non-profit development. Before joining the ACF team, I served as Senior Corporate Account Manager with United Way for Greater Austin. I managed relationships with corporate partners, supported their annual giving campaigns, and engaged their employees with United Way’s work fighting poverty and closing the opportunity gap in our community.
Jennifer’s favorite things to do in Central Texas: I love supporting the performing arts in our community and enjoy experiencing as many live theater productions as possible, including musicals and plays at ZACH, touring Broadway shows at Bass Concert Hall, and Austin Symphony Orchestra concerts and operas at the Long Center. I also enjoy spending time with family, going to see movies and stand up comedy shows with my husband, and singing karaoke with my friends. I’m a member of the Paramount & Stateside Theatres and passionate about supporting the preservation of these beautiful historic downtown venues.
