Director of Development
Meet Meredith! She is a fundraising guru with the heart of a storyteller.
Meredith started her career at World Food Program USA, where she learned firsthand the power of fundraising to alleviate hunger and support those in need. After building on her grant writing skills at the Henry Street Settlement, her passions expanded as an organizer and blogger at Change.org, mobilizing activists to make a positive impact on the world. Meredith also served as an Associate Director at New York University's Office of Development and Alumni Relations, where she sharpened her fundraising prowess.
After several years, she joined ActionAid USA as Foundations Manager, working to build and sustain strong relationships with foundation partners to support ActionAid’s work around the world. Now, as Director of Development, she leads the fundraising team, with a particular focus on Foundations giving.
With an M.A. in Food Studies from NYU and a B.A. in International Affairs & Spanish Language and Literature from The George Washington University, Meredith brings a unique and powerful perspective to her work at ActionAid.
When she’s not finding unique pathways for funding, she is making moves on the Denver Sustainable Food Policy Council to influence policy that fosters food security and promotes a healthy, equitable, and sustainable local food system. She is also an enthusiastic backyard beekeeper and gardener, and has a loveable Goldendoodle, Zoë, who is sweet to everyone except squirrels. She currently lives in Denver with her husband and child.Follow Meredith on Twitter
