Behind-the-scenes oversight of processes, operations, and logistics

Angela develops processes and procedures that inspire productivity, encouraging teams to achieve their goals and deliverables in the most effective ways possible. With more than a decade of progressive philanthropy experience supporting individual foundations and donor collaboratives investing in human rights, voting rights, and the arts, she recognizes that clear, efficient, and flexible systems are essential to strong operations and successful strategic work.

At TCC Group, Angela manages systems that undergird complex, multi-partner foundation projects, ensuring successful budget oversight, workflow management, and client communications. Providing comprehensive support for her TCC colleagues as well as our foundation partners, she develops and monitors project work scopes, liaises with key participants, collaborates in planning and execution of meetings, and prepares work products and team operational materials.

With smooth project management as her main objective, Angela galvanizes and enables her partners, colleagues, and stakeholders as they work towards a more just world.

At TCC Group:
  • Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF): For RWJF, America’s largest health-focused philanthropy committed to advancing health equity, Angela serves as Project Manager on two donor collaborative efforts that seek to strengthen alignment among equity-driven local, regional, and national foundations. For the Local and Regional Foundations Initiative, Angela oversees workflow management; reviews budgets; monitors and adapts changes to the work scope; contributes to written deliverables; and supports planning and execution of Community of Practice and Advisory Committee meetings. For the Kids and Place Exploration, Angela provides overall project management; tracks monthly activities; and contributes to planning agendas and ensuring timely deliverable production.
Before TCC Group:
  • State Infrastructure Fund (SIF), NEO Philanthropy: As the first official staff member for SIF, which supports organizations working to engage historically underrepresented voters and protect their right to vote, Angela established internal systems that adapted to changing needs as the donor collaborative staff grew to 6 members. She also led the development of the Fund’s internal evaluation plan, tracking SIF’s progress towards its mission of increasing voter participation and protecting and advancing voting rights.
  • U.S. Human Rights Fund, NEO Philanthropy: Angela served in multiple programming roles for this (now sunset) pooled donor collaborative, which promoted human rights and increased support for domestic human rights advocacy in the United States.
