(650) 721-5220

Michelle has over 25 years of strategic planning and fundraising experience in the nonprofit sector. Starting on the program side as a social worker, she transitioned to fundraising as executive director of the Multiple Sclerosis Society, Silicon Valley Chapter. In this role, she led a team that tripled fundraising revenue in her first year, achieving national recognition as the top performing chapter in the country, while securing several awards for innovative client programming. Since then, Michelle’s positions have focused on the development of high-performing fundraising programs. Underlying this work is her goal to connect community members with causes that excite them, enabling organizations to provide the most effective, innovative client programming possible. Her favorite days at the Foundation include a tour of Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford with a new member of our donor community. There’s so greater way to show them the extraordinary impact of their gift!
