Senior Major Gifts Officer
Meet Ehab! He is a career fundraiser who has worked with ActionAid USA since 2016. As AAUSA’s Senior Major Gifts Officer, he is responsible for raising vital resources from a diverse group of donors, most notably individual major donors, who are interested in supporting the organization’s mission and ensuring the growth and sustainability of its programs for years to come.
Ehab has a successful track record of linking altruists with the programs that best match their interests, raising important funds for critical humanitarian efforts along the way. A self-proclaimed “extra” extrovert, he has a passion for human rights and a proclivity for relationship building, which help make his day job quite enjoyable! In his work, Ehab has traveled to, and met with communities in, Brazil and the West Bank, and has represented ActionAid USA at a variety of conferences and events throughout the U.S.
Ehab holds a degree in Biology and began his development career in event fundraising for cancer research. His Arab-American background helped shape his interest in social justice and international work. In his spare time, he enjoys distance running, chasing his toddler around (which feels like distance running), dad jokes, and all things travel and adventure.
