Phoebe Anderson

Fundraiser Consultant

Phoebe Anderson leads a development strategy focused on supporting NACSA’s strategic plan goals and manages relationships with key stakeholders, including NACSA’s Board of Directors and National Advisory Board. She oversees operations including hiring, onboarding, and organizational policies and procedures to keep the trains running on time.

Phoebe’s fundraising experiences come from both sides of the table: she previously managed a grantmaking fund for authorizers and did development work at a small nonprofit that works with Chicago Public Schools. Phoebe’s passion for educational equity is born from firsthand experience: she is also a former middle school teacher.

She holds a bachelor’s degree from the University of California-Berkeley, where she graduated magna cum laude with a degree in history.

Phoebe lives near Wrigley Field in Chicago with the three loves of her life: her husband, Josh, and her two young children, Josephine and Albie.
