Katie Todd, MPA ' 13

Katie’s first real taste of public service was as a high school special education teacher in Vance County through Teach For America. After two years witnessing educational inequities and the numerous intersectional issues impacting the lives of her students, their families, and the broader community, Katie committed herself to a career in the nonprofit sector. She has advocated on issues ranging from healthcare to the environment to systemic racism. As a past chair of the Young Nonprofit Professionals Network  (YNPN) chapter here in the Triangle, Katie continues to push for increased investments in the next generation of leaders while demanding a more equitable, diverse, and inclusive sector. For her “day” job, she is the Development Director with the Me Fine Foundation, a nonprofit that provides emotional support and financial assistance to families whose children are receiving care at North Carolina partner hospitals. For her “night” jobs, Katie serves on the boards of the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) Triangle chapter; Durham People’s Alliance; Philanthropy Journal; and Girls on the Run – Triangle.
