While earning an MBA in finance and marketing at Rutgers University, Sandra Miniutti worked with a professor to develop the initial business plan for a new non-profit called GlassRoots. The success of this project solidified Sandra’s passion for advancing the nonprofit sector and inspired her to transition her career out of the corporate sector. In 2000, Sandra entered the nonprofit sector as a member of the PR and Development staff of the Morris Museum. She then went on to work at Charity Navigator where she wore many different hats – including serving as both VP of Marketing and CFO – and often appeared on television, radio, and in print, commenting on the nonprofit sector. Sandra has nearly twenty years of extensive nonprofit experience in public relations, marketing, fundraising, strategic planning, public speaking, partnership-building, financial management, research, analysis, and writing.
Today, she’s proud to bring her deep commitment to advancing a vibrant and healthy philanthropic marketplace in which charities have the necessary skills and resources to solve our communities’ most pressing issues to her work at Family Promise. As COO, Sandra oversees the Regional Directors and Affiliate Services staff to ensure the overall health and success of Affiliates and the coordination of national programs with Affiliates. She enjoys being part of the extraordinary team at Family Promise working to help families experiencing homelessness achieve sustainable independence.
Sandra’s son and husband are bagpipers and her daughter is an Irish step dancer. When they’re not marching in parades and performing at events, her family enjoys traveling and spending time outdoors with their rescue dog.
