Allison manages the ongoing stewardship and growth of CFJ’s foundation portfolio, focusing on community-centric and economic justice principles in her fundraising strategies. Her professional path is deeply rooted in the nonprofit sector, most recently fundraising for immigrant rights and justice. As the daughter of Filipine Bisaya immigrants, Allison regards community care and decolonization as integral to both her personal and professional growth. She earned a B.A. in World Literature and an Ed.M. in International Education Policy. She believes learning and unlearning is at the core of liberation, and wants to see revolutionary systems change in both U.S. and global education.
Outside of her fundraising grind, Allison is a badass biscuit baker, a creative writer, and an auntie to the best nephew in the world.
