31 Aug Meet Abbie Gelopulos, Your Charity Relationship Associate
We are thrilled to introduce Abbie Gelopulos, our Charity Relationship Associate. Abbie gave us some very thoughtful insights on charity support and told us a little bit about herself and her role here at Givinga and the Givinga Foundation:
Tell us a bit about yourself.
I was born and raised in Indiana and graduated from Ball State University in 2019 with a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature. This is actually my second job related to charitable giving, as I previously worked for a nonprofit in college. And, in my spare time, I enjoy reading, especially fiction and poetry from the Romantic and Victorian eras, eventually hoping to have my own home library.
What does your day to day look like at Givinga Foundation?
As the Charity Relationship Associate, I work to follow up on and support anybody with donation processing and charity-related questions. Additionally, I also provide assistance to the customer support side of Givinga when faced with charitable giving issues and work on projects that ensure smooth donation processing. Overall, on my end, the main goal is to make it as easy as possible for charities to receive donations!
What is your favorite part about working for Givinga?
What I love about working for Givinga is that I am able to make a real impact in this world, as I am actively helping to push as much money as possible to important causes. Along with this, I also like the flexibility and variability that comes with working for a startup, as well as the amazing people that I have met along the way. I am looking forward to being a part of Givinga’s growth and seeing the impact we will have on charitable giving!
What are some charities and causes that are most important to you?
Being passionate about children’s welfare and its close proximity to my home in Indiana, one of the causes that is most important to me is the Riley Children’s Foundation. I am also a big supporter of the nonprofit organization Native Women’s Wilderness. I have a passion for Native American studies and want to support and uplift the voices of Native American women who continue to be affected by extreme violence.
