Carla Juarez joined the team in May 2020. Carla administers ESC’s grants calendar, coordinates the gift acknowledgement process, and executes marketing and communications strategies to support the organization’s fund development plan. They work closely with the Interim Director of Development and Communications to ensure ESC meets the annual fundraising goals.
Growing up in Los Angeles in one of the most densely populated areas of the city, Carla saw first-hand the significant impact that nonprofits had in underserved areas where kids and their families often lacked opportunities to succeed. This inspired them to volunteer and work at various organizations that served their neighborhood with educational programs and creative possibilities. After earning a Bachelor of Arts in English from UCLA, Carla worked with City Year Los Angeles, The Salvation Army, ESC (previously as an intern), and Heart of Los Angeles.
Carla loves to participate in various forms of creative expression, such as writing, sewing, fashion, and cooking. When they are not indoors, they like to be out hiking and exercising.
