SAVE welcomes new Director of Development
Submitted By Safe Alternatives to Violent Environments (SAVE)
SAVE welcomes Paula Manczuk, CFRE, as its new Director of Development. Paula brings with her extensive experience both in fundraising and nonprofit organizations. Since obtaining her first nonprofit job right out of college, Paula has spent her entire career working in the sector. She solidified her commitment to the field by obtaining her MasterÕs in Nonprofit Management from Regis University in 2013. This leadership-focused program helped Paula expand and refine her skills as a nonprofit professional.
After working in clinical and administrative areas of nonprofits, Paula became inspired to move into fundraising in 2006 when she accepted a position at a wildlife museum in Colorado. In the last eleven years, she has tried her hand at all areas of fundraising, and enjoys wearing many hats in smaller shops. Doing so helps her stay close to the mission where she can see in the impact first hand. PaulaÕs most recent position was the Director of Development for a foundation that supports retired military veterans and wounded warriors in Northern Virginia. In 2015, she became a Certified Fundraising Executive, demonstrating both her knowledge of the field and her commitment to fundraising ethically.
A newcomer to California, Paula moved with her longtime partner when he relocated to Silicon Valley for his job. They look forward to exploring the natural beauty and man-made attractions California has to offer. Looking at the weather back on the east coast this winter, they realize this was the best time to move west.
Paula is thrilled to be a part of the SAVE team and looks forward to helping grow support for such an important cause.
