Nancy Shaw brings a wealth of behind-the-scenes nonprofit management experience and commitment to social change work to LCCR. Most recently, she served as Managing Director of Wilderness Torah, overseeing finance, operations, and development for a fast-growing organization, which doubled in size during her tenure and won regional and national awards. She spent 5+ years managing operations at foundations, including the Evelyn & Walter Haas, Jr. Fund, a national leader in immigrant and LGBTQ+ rights. She is proud that during her time there, the Haas, Jr. Fund was funding early marriage equality cases nationwide, helping build the groundswell of change we see today.
She also served as Executive Director of the Craigslist Foundation, directing innovative capacity-building (everything from helping find Board members to providing acting coaches for EDs to hone their presentation skills) for under-resourced Bay Area nonprofits. Nancy also launched and ran the environmental responsibility program at Blue Shield of California, helping a large organization embrace environmental practices.
Nancy has served on several nonprofit Boards and holds a BA from UC Berkeley and an MBA, with a focus on socially-responsible business, from Presidio Graduate School. Nancy lives with her family in her college town, Berkeley.
