Meghan Macaluso is Save The Bay’s chief development officer

We’re proud to welcome Meghan Macaluso as Save The Bay’s new chief development officer. As CDO, she is responsible for meeting Save The Bay’s ambitious fundraising goals.

Meghan is a political and charitable fundraiser who has worked for nearly fifteen years at leading Bay Area non-profits, political campaigns, and private sector firms. She comes to Save The Bay with significant experience raising money for political and advocacy organizations, most recently in the field of women’s reproductive health and rights.  She has served in senior leadership positions at NARAL Pro-Choice America, Population Action International, and Planned Parenthood Northern California.

“I am inspired by the story of our founders, three women who were politically savvy and effective in an era when women didn’t have a seat at the table,” Meghan says. “Now, I hope to marshal the financial resources Save The Bay needs to carry our mission forward for the next 50 years.”

Native to landlocked Denver, Meghan chose to relocate to the Bay Area for the quality life and natural setting. “It was love at first sight – I was struck by the exquisite beauty of the Bay waters. Now I can work to preserve the Bay’s natural beauty for my son and the many generations to come.”

In her free time, Meghan serves as a volunteer fundraising trainer for Emerge California, a statewide organization that trains Democratic women to run for elected office, and provides fundraising consulting services for political candidates.  A graduate of Boston College with a BA in History, Meghan lives in Oakland with her family.
