Native Americans in Philanthropy is happy to announce a new addition to our team! Allie Young (Diné) has recently joined the staff as our new Executive Assistant. Allie previously worked at Nickelodeon where she served as the assistant to two Executive Producers and has experience working with nonprofits and began her own fiscally sponsored organization, Survival of the First Voices, an art and media festival in New Mexico.
Another exciting change is Ashley Wheeler will be moving from the Executive Assistant position to the Office and Operations Manager. Ashley has been on the Native Americans in Philanthropy staff since 2015. She’s become a vital part of the organization’s operations and we are positive she’ll do great in her new role.
Allie will be based out of the new Los Angeles office located in The California Endowment building. The addition of a Los Angeles office will bring many new and exciting opportunities to engage more closely to the work happening on the ground and to strengthen our national outreach. Two locations will increase our visibility, activity, and accessibility to different movements and our network of members, partners, and allies. All email addresses and our main phone line will remain the same at (612)724-8798.
Please join us in congratulating Ashley and welcoming Allie!
