Meet Faith Bender

Development Manager

Faith will be responsible for all special event fundraising, grant efforts and appeal initiatives. She will also spearhead The Long Drive (formerly known as the Deb Long Drive) fundraising initiative in support of girls programming. She will also continue to work closely with the Communications & Marketing department on all donor correspondence.

In 2020, Faith graduated from UC San Diego with a B.A. in Communications and a minor in psychology. While in college, she served as the philanthropy chair of her sorority, overseeing all aspects of their annual fundraiser and directly contributing to raising more than $15,000.

Why the non-profit industry?

I am passionate about working in the non-profit sector because it has always been a priority of mine to do work that is mission-driven and relationship oriented. I believe working for a non-profit will provide massive opportunity for personal growth and professional reward knowing that the work I do is making a tangible positive impact on the world.

Something people may not know?

I lived in Italy for four months, and while I was there I traveled to 14 cities and eight different European countries, and can not wait to go back for more!
