Raise DC Staff and Operations
Aisha Shah joined Raise DC in July 2015 as its Program Associate, where she supports the organization's staff and Change Networks. After graduating from Davidson College with a B.A. in English Literature and a minor in Hispanic Studies in 2013, she was awarded an Impact Fellowship with YES Prep Public Schools in Houston, Texas. At YES, Aisha supported the schools' communications and advancement departments, and it was here that she developed a passion for education advocacy and nonprofit communications.
Aisha most recently served as a nonprofit liaison for LexisNexis Special Services Inc.'s overarching corporate giving initiative, LN Cares. She is excited to return to the philanthropic sector and affect positive change for youth in the District.
