Director of Gift Planning
"It is a true joy to support donors with their philanthropic goals. I especially love learning about the wide array of organizations that are doing great work in our community."
As Director of Gift Planning, Mariah helps individuals and families initiate and express their philanthropic plan to maximize their giving. In her role, Mariah also provides nonprofits the support to start and grow their endowments and works alongside professional advisors to help them achieve their client’s philanthropic goals. The most rewarding part of her job is watching donors be open-handed with the resources they have and the impact it has on community.
Mariah joined the Saint Paul & Minnesota Foundation in 2014 after graduating from the University of Minnesota with a bachelor’s degree in communication studies. She is involved in her community through various leadership and volunteer roles at her church in downtown Minneapolis and serves on the board of a family support center.
A Midwesterner at heart, she loves exploring the people, places and things that make Minnesota home. In her spare time, she enjoys running, traveling, trying new restaurants and spending time with her husband, friends and family.
