Allie Rigonati is the Development Manager for the Foundation. Her duties in this role include managing the President’s Circle and coordinating small group events and other stewardship activities.

Raised in Carpinteria, Allie is passionate about doing work that serves to strengthen the local community. She got her start in nonprofit work as an Advancement Associate at the Music Academy of the West, where she provided support to the organization’s advancement team in everything from direct mail appeals to events. Before her entrée into the nonprofit world, Allie worked for three years in a writing-intensive role creating content for the educational reference publisher ABC-CLIO and its suite of online social science databases.

In her spare time, Allie can be found playing beach volleyball, trying out new recipes, partaking in trivia nights, or watching Seinfeld reruns.
