Staff Bio


Laurel Dalsted

Director, Donor Relations & Development
Bayside Office, Donor Engagement

(707) 442-2993

Originally from Arcata, I attended College of the Redwoods prior to transferring to the University of California, San Diego to complete my bachelor’s degree in International Studies with an emphasis in political science. After over a decade in fundraising and communications in the nonprofit sector in San Diego, I returned to the North Coast and could not be happier to have the opportunity contribute to the wellbeing and growth of the region I have always considered home.  As Donor Relations and Development Director, I work in partnership with local donors and advisors to advance the Foundation’s mission to promote and encourage generosity, leadership and inclusion to strengthen our communities.
