Stacey has worn many hats in her 20 years leading and serving the philanthropy sector. She’s a national speaker, successful entrepreneur, and a philanthropist. Twelve years ago she established her company, Professionals in Philanthropy (PiP), which works with nonprofits and philanthropists to be as effective and impactful as possible. Specifically, PiP specializes in nonprofit board governance, strategic planning, storytelling, grant writing, and philanthropy advising.
One of Stacey’s greatest accomplishments is creating Nevada’s Big Give—Nevada’s first ever online day of giving that has raised over $2.5 million for more than 500 Nevada nonprofits and schools.
In 1998 Stacey graduated summa cum laude from the UNLV Honors College, where she was named Undergraduate Scholar of the Year and six years later was named Outstanding Alumnus of the Year. She is one of only 150 Board Certified Governance Trainers in the world and has received numerous awards for her community leadership, including the Humanitarian of the Year Award, Women to Watch and Outstanding Volunteer Fundraiser—just to name a few.
She walks the talk through her personal philanthropy and her company’s generosity. PiP—short for Professionals in Philanthropy—gives 10% of its annual revenues to charitable organizations, and Stacey personally volunteers 200 hours/year through board service and other gifts of time.
When not working, she relishes snuggling with her husband and two rescue dogs, wine tasting and international travel.
