National Organizer for Donor Relations

Sam Jacobs


Sam grew up in San Diego and moved east to study engineering, then left that behind to spend a couple years working in the back of house of a restaurant. Along the way, Sam was politicized by the Occupy movement and the Movement for Black Lives and started organizing as a member leader of Resource Generation, a community of young people with wealth and class privilege who support grassroots social movements for justice and work to change philanthropy. He’s especially proud of organizing and participating in giving circles to move money to struggles for Palestinian liberation, movements to fight corporate power, and gender justice organizing with a group of feminist dudes. Sam now lives in Brooklyn, and when he’s not fundraising, he’s probably cooking pancakes or playing beach volleyball.
