Evan joined the Project Schoolhouse Advisory Board in 2019 following his four year service on the Board of Directors, finishing his term as Board President in 2018. In his board capacity, Evan helped to broaden Project Schoolhouse’s donor base and was instrumental in raising significant funds to increase the organization’s impact in Nicaragua.
In 2018, Evan relocated to Brisbane, Australia to serve as the director of advancement at the Faculty of Science at the University of Queensland (UQ). Prior to UQ, Evan served as Director of Development at Rice University in Houston Texas raising major gifts in the Northeast, including New York City.
Evan joined the board because of Project Schoolhouse’s immense potential in solving fundamental problems such as access to clean water and education for seemingly little resources, e.g.it only takes $30,000 USD to build an entire school. In 2016 Evan travelled to Nicaragua with fellow board members to witness the transformative effect PSH is having in the remote rainforests.
