Mackenzie joined The Dallas Foundation in June 2017 and has recently transitioned from her role as Manager of Donor Services to Director of Scholarships. She is passionate about connecting donors, along with their families, to organizations who are making our community a better place. With over a decade of non-profit management and philanthropy experience, she is dedicated to helping donors make the greatest impact possible. As a 21/64 Certified Advisor and Chartered Advisor in Philanthropy (CAP®), she is devoted to engaging, educating and empowering the next generation of volunteers and philanthropists.
Prior to The Dallas Foundation, Mackenzie served as the Grants Administrator at the Lyda Hill Foundation, where she assisted Miss Hill, a member of The Giving Pledge, support organizations focused on game-changing advances in science, healthcare, nature and community empowerment.
When she’s not working with donors, she is serving the community through the Mayor’s Star Council, a civically-minded leadership development organization for young professionals who are committed to making transformational change in Dallas. Mackenzie enjoys traveling, live music, volunteering, a nice patio with friends/family and spending time with her pug, Taco. Her world revolves around good food, so she is always up for trying a new lunch spot.
