January Webinar: Bite-Sized Fundraising Planning Session

 

Presenter: Elizabeth Neher
Senior Specialist, Resource Development Expertise Hub at Habitat for Humanity International

Expertise Hub with Habitat for Humanity International and provides resource development support to the affiliated network. Opportunities to build meaningful relationships have always been foundational to her career pursuits. Prior to joining the HFHI team in 2018, Elizabeth served for six years with Habitat for Humanity of Monroe County in Bloomington IN. As the Director of Engagement, she discovered the powerful connection between strategic relationship building and inspiring community impact through philanthropic giving and volunteerism. Before connecting her passion with the mission of Habitat for Humanity, Elizabeth’s career began with more than a decade in the public and private sectors focused on human resources. Specifically, in training, coaching, recruitment, and onboarding strategy. As is so often true of the people who are led to serve in the mission of Habitat for Humanity, the cumulative and seemingly disparate skillset from these professional experiences make perfect sense in the diverse landscape of this work! Elizabeth loves the outdoors and is particularly interested in sustainable and local food production methods and systems. She and her family live on a small farm in rural Virginia and are happily exploring new ways to build ‘home.’
