Join Net Impact, Nonprofit Board Fellows, and General Management club for a Board Service Workshop with Jackie Downing. We will discuss how to engage in the social sector through board service and reflect on how this work relates to a larger organizational ecosystem.

Jackie Downing is the Senior Director of Grantmaking and Nonprofit Support for The Community Foundation for Greater New Haven. She divides her time between competitive grantmaking and strengthening nonprofits through capacity building programs, workshops, technical assistance,® and The Great Give. A graduate of Southern Connecticut State University, Jackie started her professional career at the New Haven Symphony Orchestra. She went on to be the Development and Program Director at the Dixwell Community "Q" House, and Development Director at her alma mater Sacred Heart Academy.
