We are pleased to announce that Angela Ellis will be joining EAPS on July 1 as our new Senior Development Officer, succeeding Dawn Adelson who left EAPS to join the Office of Leadership Giving at MIT in March.
Angela is already familiar with MIT as she has been working in MIT's Office of Foundation Relations since 2011, where she has successfully collaborated with faculty and colleagues in Resource Development and the School of Science to secure foundation grants in support of neuroscience and biomedical research in the Picower and McGovern Institutes, the Brain and Cognitive Sciences Department, the Biology Department, and the Koch Institute for Integrative Cancer Research.
Before coming to MIT, Angela worked at The Nature Conservancy (TNC) as Senior Associate Director of Philanthropy for eight years, working with TNC leaders and scientists to raise major individual and foundation gifts for regional and international conservation initiatives, including climate change and ocean conservation programs. Prior to that Angela was Director of Major Gifts at the North Shore Medical Center, and Director of Individual Giving at the New England Aquarium. Angela received a B.Sc. in Chemistry and an M.Sc. in History and Philosophy of Science from Manchester University in England, where, interestingly, her thesis topic focused on the emergence of Environmental Science as a mission-oriented scientific specialty! Angela lives in Marblehead, MA, and has two adult children who live happily in Austin, TX and New York City.
In her new role Angela will be responsible for raising private support for EAPS' research and educational activities, working closely with department head Rob van der Hilst and the rest of the faculty. The School of Science is delighted that Angela will bring her experience and expertise to this position. With her long term interest in environmental science, Angela is thrilled to be joining EAPS and to return to fundraising to increase our scientific knowledge about the earth, oceans, atmosphere and planets. She looks forward to meeting EAPS faculty, students, alumni and donors. Please feel free to reach out to Angela at 617-253-5796 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
