Tamara Craver

President & CEO

Tamara Craver is Reality Changers’ new President and Chief Executive Officer. Craver has over 20 years of experience in nonprofit fundraising and executive leadership.

 

Tamara Craver brings an enviable range of abilities as a fundraiser and executive.

In addition to leading a successful office, Craver increased the annual revenue from $700K to over $2.5M per year. She established enduring relationships with partner colleges across the nation.

Prior to her role with Posse, Craver served as Director of Development and Communications for Torrance South Bay YMCA and as Director, Social Markets for the American Heart Association, Western States Affiliates.
