Xin (pronounced “shin”) is a nonprofit fundraising professional with human rights grantmaking experience. She believes movement-led philanthropy and donor of color activism support the revolutionary transfer of power necessary for social and racial justice movements. Xin previously managed institutional fundraising of foundation, corporate, and government grants for the New York Immigration Coalition. She started her career in grantmaking at the Open Society Foundations, supporting global health financing initiatives at the Public Health Program, followed by the Urgent Action Fund for Women’s Human Rights, making rapid-response grants to women and LGBTQI+ human rights defenders. Making the transition from grantmaking to fundraising, she managed an institutional portfolio of $5 million for a microfinance community development financial institution, served as Individual Giving Manager at the National Center for Lesbian Rights, and oversaw communications and development at the Human Rights Funders Network. Xin holds a Bachelor’s degree in Social Policy from Northwestern University.
Born in China, Xin considers herself a Midwesterner at heart with an appreciation of New York’s pace and the Bay Area’s weather. She currently resides in the Bronx. She is grateful for the opportunity to show up for immigrant communities through fundraising at Immigrant Justice Corps.
