Describe the Impact of a Project you’re focused on.

As a part of the Sports Impact Leadership Certificate (SILC) program, an unparalleled virtual training program at the intersection of sports and philanthropy at the Johns Hopkins University, I feel I am making an impact on how sport-based organizations strategize their fundraising processes and how charitable giving institutions think about how they make contributions.

What results do you hope for when the impact is amplified?

I hope sport-based organizations and charitable giving institutions will create a bigger impact in this special sector.
