Michal has spent the past near-decade in resource development and donor relations in Jerusalem. She has held positions in major organizations, such as Bakehila, The Joint Distribution Committee (JDC), and The City of David.
Michal has connected with philanthropists, celebrities and politicians as well as became profoundly exposed to some of Israel’s most pressing social struggles and the incredible projects on the ground working to create solutions.
Her experience has provided her with the opportunity to touch on all areas of resource development including cultivating strategic relationships, developing and leading tailor-made donor visits to program sites, as well as constructing and implementing fundraising strategies, intricate materials and complex information management systems.
Today at Siftech, Michal is crafting a new strategic fundraising plan and operation, and in parallel, she is also developing a new venture aimed at enhancing the third sector ecosystem in Israel and providing capacity building programs for emerging nonprofit organizations.
