Introducing Melissa, our new Director of Donor Relations!

Please join us in welcoming Melissa Nussbaum, our new Director of Donor Relations! We asked Melissa to share a little about her background and what brings her to Groundswell…
“Throughout my entire career I have worked on social justice issues.  However, I found myself working on solutions that focused on one issue and often in a silo. I joined Groundswell International because I believe that our holistic approach and model for solving climate change, food security and poverty is exactly how NGO’s should approach these challenges. I also believe strongly in our partner-led approach which builds the capacity of local NGOs rather than supplant them.  The majority of the beneficiaries of our programs are the women small-holder farmers who are struggling to put food on the table for their own families.  Groundswell’s work touches on all the issues I care about from women’s empowerment to food security.
I have also focused my career on building and growing small organizations. Groundswell is currently poised to have an even larger impact and I am excited to be a part of the team that makes it happen.  I look forward to meeting and working with all of our partners and donors. Feel free to contact me at if you would like to learn more about our work and how you can help.”
Welcome, Melissa! We are excited to have you here!
