We are thrilled to welcome Allyson Halpern as GLIDE’s new Chief Advancement Officer.
Allyson has spent her career in nonprofit management and philanthropy, specializing in mission-driven organizations that are starting up and/or at a critical stage of growth.
Most recently she worked at Life Learning Academy (LLA) as its first Chief Advancement Officer, building the systems and capacity for major philanthropic growth.
Prior to LLA, she spent seven years at 826 Valencia, where she helped the organization expand to two additional sites, triple its contributed income, amass a significant financial reserve, and double its student reach.
Allyson was raised in Massachusetts, and she has a special love for autumn leaves and Maine lobstah. When not working, you can find her solving NYT word puzzles on her phone, loving on her black Lab Ozzy, or hanging with her husband Dan and wondering how their two daughters grew up so fast.
Please join us in welcoming Allyson to the team!
