Rachel Deery

Director of Grants and Foundation Relations

Rachel has been writing grants for All Hands and Hearts since 2013 and is an enthusiastic member of the Engagement Team, where she serves as Director of Grants and Foundation Relations. She brings over a decade of non-profit experience gained in membership on a number of non-profit boards, and writing skills honed during her time as a journalist in Russia during the 1990’s, as well as her previous career as a lawyer. Rachel is responsible for overseeing grant-related interactions with organizational funders such as public and private foundations, government agencies, and grant-making non-profits. This work includes researching grant opportunities, proposal writing and reviewing, coordinating with field teams on grant compliance, grant reporting, and maintaining relationships with grantors through updates, meetings, and correspondence. Rachel is a graduate of the College of William & Mary and the University of Virginia Law School. In her spare time, she enjoys attending the theater as often as possible, reading, and dancing. She is also a big fan of trips to All Hands and Hearts programs, where she can see the life-changing work of the amazing volunteers first-hand.
