Majoring in international development and minoring in social entrepreneurship, Alli spent two life-changing years working in the field in Latin America and Africa—solidifying her interest in working in global development. After attending a panel in her home state of North Carolina moderated by GlobalGiving’s founder, Alli leveraged her international development and grant management experience to join the GlobalGiving team—valuing its forward-thinking views on community-focused solutions.
In the office early, Alli makes calls to referred non-profit organizations and carefully reads grant reports—working to understand challenges and provide guidance to grantees. Reviewing applications from non-profits that want to join GlobalGiving, Alli researches local laws and updates internal databases. Later in the day, she teams up with the Business Development and Product Teams to monitor the impact of donor funds and plan future outreach efforts.
