Gabriela Varas

Donor Relations Assistant

she/her

Gabriela comes to Groundswell Fund with over 8 years of work experience in both the for-profit and non-profit sectors. From accounting and administration to development and public relations, she has had an opportunity to grow a diverse skill set that she is excited to bring with her to the position of Donor Relations Assistant.

Her most recent work at an AIDS Service Organization in west Alabama is something she is very proud of and is thrilled to continue to be able to champion social justice issues in her new capacity with Groundswell Fund.

Gabriela was raised in the New Orleans area and is a proud first-generation American who feels closely connected to both her Colombian and Ecuadorian heritage. She received a B.S. in International Studies with a minor in Political Science from Spring Hill College in Mobile, Alabama.

In her free time, she enjoys hanging out with her family and pets, refurbishing thrifted furniture, watching stand-up comedy, and learning the art of flower arranging.
