Jackie Doherty

Jackie (she/her/hers): Throughout my career in the nonprofit sector, I am grateful to have worked with creative and compassionate people who seek to manifest a more just and equitable world. At NFF, I partner with mission-driven organizations to support their financial health and sustainability so they can carry out their strategic visions for the future. Prior to joining NFF, I served as Senior Manager of Institutional Giving at Sundance Institute (Los Angeles, CA), where I developed partnerships with foundations and government agencies to foster inclusive representation in film and media, promote public engagement with the arts, and improve sustainability in the field of independent storytelling. I was also Director of Development at Finger Lakes ReUse (Ithaca, NY), where I led fundraising and administrative operations, and began my nonprofit career at Willie Mae Rock Camp for Girls (Brooklyn, NY). I studied communications at Northwestern University and developmental psychology at Teachers College, Columbia University. My other professional journeys have included film and television production, live music, corporate recruiting, and childcare. I love learning new home repair skills, going on long bike rides and hikes, and experimenting in the kitchen.
