Raelyn’s role: I process incoming gifts and provide technical and administrative support for all of the Foundation’s operations. This includes processing contributions from a variety of sources, preparing donor acknowledgements, 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 work, 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.
