Community Foundation of New Jersey
The Community Foundation of New Jersey is a 501c-3 (non-profit), which works with purpose driven individuals, families, and businesses on creative projects that tackle critical societal or policy issues. The world is becoming more socially conscious! CFNJ helps by hosting and directing our corporate philanthropy, scholarships, legacy funds and donor advised funds, all set aside to meet the needs of our greater community.
Host Job Responsibilities
I manage our $650 million of invested assets, our accounting/ finance department and HR department.
About the Externship
I have had many jobs throughout my career. Students will learn about the path I took to become a CFO and why you should never stop learning or looking for new experiences. They will learn about what I chose to study in college and why it helps me now even though I am no longer in that field. They will learn about my work experience at public companies, private equity firms and non-profits and how those organizations are different and yet similar. The session will address why there is such a focus now on social issues and why everyone in the investment world is talking about impact investing.
