Catherine Eusebio profile picture

Catherine has deep roots in nonprofit and grassroots organizations upholding the rights of immigrants and advancing more just and equitable philanthropies.

Prior to North Star Fund, Catherine grew the communications and membership capacity of Asian Americans/Pacific Islanders in Philanthropy. In partnership with UCLA Labor Center, Catherine expanded Dream Summer, a national internship program for undocumented youth, to create a pipeline for Asian Americans to access leadership development opportunities. Catherine recently ended her term as the board chair of United We Dream, a national immigrant youth-led organization in the U.S., advocating for the dignity and fair treatment of immigrant youth and families.

Navigating systemic barriers to education as an undocumented Asian American student led Catherine to develop a lifelong commitment to the empowerment of underserved communities. Catherine graduated with a B.A. in Political Science from University of California, Berkeley, where as an undergraduate she served on the Chancellor’s Task Force, contributing to a legacy of lasting policy changes in the campus’ accessibility and support for undocumented students.

She has also written articles for publications such as the Huffington Post and Harvard Education Review and spoken at several national conferences to share her story of being “undocumented and unafraid.” Catherine was honored by the Obama Administration’s White House as one of 15 women who were selected as “Champions of Change” as part of its celebration of Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month.
