In Jenny’s first year at CFSA, she is especially proud of supporting CFSA’s largest-ever grant round and the launch of the Nonprofit Solar Project, providing solar arrays to power nonprofit organizations, enhancing their sustainability to serve the community. She serves on the board of the MAP Dashboard as well as Sun Corridor.

Her passion is partnering with donors and nonprofits to create a more vibrant and equitable southern Arizona.
