Grants Manager

Elizabeth Vana

Elizabeth is committed to making positive change in the world, and was drawn to work for Dog Tag after seeing the fellowship's powerful impact and the transformational change fellows experience. As Grants Manager, Elizabeth oversees Dog Tag's grant writing and reporting strategy, and manages our portfolio of institutional donors––ensuring Dog Tag has the funds necessary to power our mission.

Elizabeth is a graduate of George Mason University, where she obtained a B.A in English with minors in Spanish and Computer Game Design. She is a Certified Fund-Raising Executive (CFRE) through CFRE International, which demonstrates her fundraising knowledge, skills, and commitment to ethical, best-practice fundraising.

When not at work, Elizabeth loves to spend her time in the kitchen experimenting with new recipes, or cuddling with her cats. Her favorite baked good is a well-portioned slice of chocolate cheesecake with raspberries.
