He currently works as the director of development for Demos. David has a B.A. in Journalism and a B.A. in International Relations from San Francisco State University.
As a board member, David contributes his fundraising and nonprofit management experience to assist in greater resource development for North Star Fund and to help raise visibility and awareness about the important work of the organization.
“As a fundraiser and activist, I’ve always felt that the most transformative social justice work is achieved by those closest to the challenges. They are most able and effective at creating change. For this reason, I’m always looking at ways to get more funds into the hands of smaller organizations and local leaders who are directly addressing the specific needs of their and our communities. North Star Fund serves a critical role by doing exactly that.”
