Manuela Delnevo

Development Coordinator, Forward Together

As the Development Coordinator at Forward Together, Manuela manages the donor database, leads donor stewardship programs, and works closely with the Development team to build and implement a people-centered fundraising vision grounded in our organizational values. Prior to working at Forward Together, Manuela completed her Master’s degree in Women and Gender Studies at San Francisco State University. As a graduate student, her research focused on the colonial underpinnings of global development initiatives, particularly those centered on women and girls’ empowerment in the global South. She previously worked as an English and Spanish teacher in Vietnam, the UK and Gabon, learning with and from students of all ages and backgrounds.

Manuela is Colombian and Italian, but grew up in many different places around the world. When she is not crafting thank-you letters, she loves to dance, sing, Skype her family and friends, and eat delicious food with her partner.
