Jennifer “Jenn” Shultz has more than a decade of experience in the non-profit sector.  She transitioned to the non-profit sector after an initial career in corporate America in product and project management roles at large multi-national companies. Her first non-profit role was with Southern Methodist University in the field of prospect management before moving into a fundraising position for SMU’s Dedman School of Law. She joined Wake Forest University in North Carolina to create and lead its prospect management office during the institution’s $1,000,000,000 campaign launch. Her return to Texas afforded her the opportunity to lead fundraising for both the Foundation for the Education of Young Women and the Turtle Creek Association, a non-profit that focuses on park preservation and enhancement.


Prior to joining NARI of North Texas, Jenn was working at United Way Metropolitan Dallas, where she had multiple roles from donor relations to frontline fundraising. Jenn enjoys working with nonprofits because she is able to make a difference and strengthen communities now and into the future.
