Danielle M. Reyes is leaving the Meyer Foundation this month after serving as a key member of the Foundation’s program staff since 2002.
Danielle currently serves as a senior program officer and leads Meyer’s Economic Security and Strong Nonprofit Sector grantmaking. During her 13 years at the Foundation, Danielle helped define Meyer’s grantmaking strategies and priorities in legal services, workforce development, and capacity-building. She was also instrumental in launching the Foundation’s social media presence and building grantee capacity and engagement in social media.
She has also held numerous local and national leadership roles, including serving as founding chair of the Metropolitan DC Hispanics in Philanthropy Funders Collaborative, as national chair of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in Philanthropy during its 20th anniversary year, and as a commissioner of Serve DC, the Mayor’s Office of Volunteerism.
“Danielle has been an important member of our team and a leader in our local grantmaking community for more than a decade,” says Meyer Foundation President and CEO Nicky Goren. “We appreciate her many contributions and wish her all the best.”
The Foundation will not fill Danielle’s position until its new strategic plan is completed later this year. After June 5, potential applicants and current grantees with questions should contact Kari Den Otter, program assistant, who will direct questions to the appropriate contact at Meyer.
