Director of Development
New York, NY
David came to JustLeadershipUSA in February 2018 to assume the role of Director of Development, overseeing all of JLUSA’s fundraising and donor relations. David first came to learn about JLUSA in his role as Executive Director of Corporation and Foundation Relations at New York University, where he was helping raise the initial funding for NYU’s new Prison Education Program. JLUSA generously provided critical technical assistance during the planning and implementation phases and helped make this new program a great success. David is also himself justice involved and every day is inspired and profoundly motivated by JLUSA’s mission. David has spent the last 28 years in not-for-profit fundraising for progressive causes and organizations, including Environmental Defense Fund, Amnesty International, and Human Rights First. David lives in Westchester County with his wife Sophie Hayden, a professional actress. David also has two amazing daughters, Hallie (26) and Grace (19).
