Lauren’s role: I work across departments to implement solutions that solve business needs and ensure the highest level of service to fundholders and donors. I also oversee the process of incoming gifts and receipts, accounts payable and other foundation administrative functions.
What Lauren likes most about working at the Foundation: The team at ACF is so smart and passionate. Everyone here cares about our community and our fundholders and donors. It’s so great to be surrounded by people innovating and working hard to make Austin better.
What Lauren did before: I started my career working in live theatre, both backstage and in patron services. After obtaining a degree in public administration from Texas State University, I supported finance and fundraising at Texas Civil Rights Project.
Lauren’s favorite thing to do in Central Texas: If I’m not traveling somewhere new, I’m escaping at home by seeing a movie at Alamo Drafthouse or exploring a park with my dog. I also like to keep it local by keeping up with Austin’s newest restaurants and volunteering at Foundation Communities’ Prosper Centers.
