The Washington Regional Association of Grantmakers is excited to welcome the 2018-2019 Philanthropy Fellows! Seven graduate students from the University of Maryland are working at five WRAG member organizations this year:

  • Fabrizio Aguirre is working on the implementation of the Windward Fund’s new strategic plan at Arabella Advisors.
  • Joury Bell is supporting grantmaking and donor services activities at the Greater Washington Community Foundation’s Montgomery County.
  • Kayla Good is assisting safety net and housing security initiatives at the Greater Washington Community Foundation.
  • Jesse Graves is working on strategic initiatives at the Mayor’s Office of Partnerships and Grant Services.
  • Tenneh Johnson Kemah is developing a special report for The Morris & Gwendolyn Cafritz Foundation.
  • Sylvia Umegbolu is working on donor recognition efforts at the Greater Washington Community Foundation.
  • Pamela Vega is supporting the community health needs assessment implementation strategy at Kaiser Permanente.

The Philanthropy Fellows program is a partnership between WRAG and the University of Maryland’s Do Good Institute. This internship pipeline and professional development program provides WRAG members with knowledgeable and skilled fellows, and gives the next generation of philanthropic and nonprofit leaders the opportunity to gain practical, hands-on experience in grantmaking, build a professional network, and learn about local community needs.
