Raelyn’s role: My job is to maintain operations at the Foundation while also providing best-in-class service to our fundholders and donors. I help process fund transactions and provide operational support to our team. This includes processing contributions from various sources, preparing donor acknowledgments, supporting the onboarding and stewardship of new funds, and donor tracking.
What Raelyn likes most about working at the Foundation: I love working with a wonderful team who really cares about philanthropy and making a difference in the Austin/Central Texas community. I like knowing that my work, even though it is more technical & behind-the-scenes, is helping make a difference to improve our community.
What Raelyn did before: Before ACF, I worked with Foundation Communities assisting with their tax program, which provides low-income families and individuals free tax preparation. Before that, I studied International Relations and Global Studies at The University of Texas at Austin while also working in the International Office helping process class credits from students’ study abroad experiences.
Raelyn’s favorite thing to do in Central Texas: I love finding new places to eat and spending time outdoors at the many wonderful parks in Austin.
