As Development Manager, Claire is responsible for the planning and implementation of GIP’s fundraising strategy, operations and activities. She engages with GIP’s supporters and friends at all levels to help them learn more about GIP and the important role our donors play in that work.
Claire also supports GIP’s Board of Directors in their fundraising activities. Prior to joining GIP, Claire worked for ten years with individual donors at The Carter Center, an international NGO founded by former President Jimmy Carter and former First Lady Rosalynn Carter. There, she worked with a portfolio of donors and managed the Ambassadors Circle program, the Center’s annual fund giving circle. Claire started her career at WNYC Radio, both in giving circles and on a capital campaign to move the station into new offices and build the Jerome L. Greene performance space. Claire graduated from Berklee College of Music, where she studied vocal performance. When she is not raising support for GIP Claire enjoys seeing live music, performing occasionally, and having adventures of all kinds with her husband and son.
