Alyssa Hawkins is the Director of Giving Programs for The Minneapolis Foundation. In this role she is responsible for facilitating groups of energetic volunteers as they collaboratively make grantmaking decisions around issues facing our community. She works with corporate employees, Minneapolis high school students, and young to mid career professionals just entering the world of philanthropy, among others, as they navigate what it means to have an impact with their dollars. Alyssa has a degree in Natural Resources from the University of Minnesota and in a past life supported K-12 educators in using service-learning as a tool for meeting academic standards and engaging students. She lives in Minneapolis with two large cats and one very small dog, and stays sane by training for marathons and triathlons.
