Director of Philanthropy and Nonprofit Engagement

Laura joined the Institute in 2011 with more than 17 years of fundraising and nonprofit experience. Early in her career, a mentor introduced her to the powerful ideas of Peter Drucker and their relevance to the social sector. Drucker’s foundational ideas about nonprofit management and effectiveness have enriched Laura’s performance as a senior development director for one of the world’s leading environmental organizations, at various health care and performing arts organizations, as well as for political campaigns. Laura proudly served for six years on the Board of Trustees for the Children’s Center at Caltech, one of America’s leading nonprofit providers of innovative STEM-based early childhood and preschool education.
