Chief Development Officer
As Chief Development Officer for LifeLine Animal Project, Jennifer Eddy oversees all of the organization’s fundraising efforts. Since joining the team in 2013, she has more than quadrupled annual fundraising and grown the Board of Directors. Jennifer spearheaded a successful capital campaign (LifeLine’s first) in support of the LifeLine Community Animal Center. The center was opened in October of 2019.
Prior to LifeLine, Jennifer worked for the Women’s Sports Foundation (WSF), a national nonprofit based in New York. Early in her 12-year tenure, she directed the WSF’s national signature events and gradually took on more and more development oversight. She initiated the organization’s pursuit of federal funding in support of its grassroots programming for urban girls. By the end of her time with the WSF, Eddy and her teams had been responsible for raising over twenty million dollars in revenue and providing programming for over 300,000 underserved girls.
Jennifer lives in Atlanta with her partner, eight-year-old son and two blonde blockheads.
