The Oregon Jewish Community Foundation has hired Susan Berniker as Donor Relations & Marketing Manager. Susan will help advance the mission of OJCF by advising donors about giving approaches, community needs and foundation services.
Prior to joining OJCF, Susan worked as an educator as well as in the nonprofit arena in fund and policy development, program management and advocacy. Susan brings a passion for social justice work grounded in Jewish values as a member of the Women of Reform Judaism’s Pacific District Social Action and Advocacy Team, as Congregation Beth Israel’s Sisterhood Social Action Chair, and as a CBI Sunday School teacher.
“Susan is a marvelous addition to the OJCF team,” says OJCF Vice President of Philanthropy Tara Siegman who previously served in the donor relations role that Susan now occupies. “Her demonstrated passion for improving the world is in natural alignment with the foundation’s vision of a world in which all Jewish people practice tikkun olam. Susan is excited to begin working with our kind-hearted fundholders and I know they will enjoy working with her. Their philanthropy will be very well and thoroughly supported.”
Susan holds a B.A. in Political Science from UCLA, a Master of Public Administration from the University of Oregon, and a Master of Art in Teaching from Concordia University. Susan can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or 503-248-9328.
