May mobilizes IGNITE's east coast community, making it possible for a new generation of young women to change the face of our democracy. As a native New Yorker, May has a long and successful track-record developing resources for a wide range of non-profits and civically minded organizations in New York City. May’s fundraising career began at Stanford University’s Medical School and then continued in the arts, education and social services in New York. May spearheaded development efforts at the National Organization for Women, New York City, and their charitable partner, Women’s Justice NOW. May increased their unrestricted funds, trained dozens of feminist activists in fundraising best practices, and raised the profile of their annual gala, gaining the attention of corporate, foundation, and political stakeholders. Prior to that, she worked with the Population Council, where she kickstarted significant support for their latest contraceptive technologies. You can reach May at may@IGNITEnational.org.
