We are excited to welcome Meghann Schwartz to BMA as the new Director of Development. Meghann is an accomplished and dedicated Jewish communal professional with a proven track-record and years of experience in resource development, nonprofit marketing, program planning and community outreach. Meghann has an undergraduate degree in English Communications and a Master’s Degree in Jewish Communal Service and Nonprofit Management from Johns Hopkins University and Baltimore Hebrew University. In 2017, Meghann was recognized with the Outstanding Jewish Communal Professional Award from the Darrell D. Friedman Institute for Professional Development. For the past six years Meghann served as the Associate Director of the Jewish Federation of Howard County, Maryland, where she implemented new and innovative fundraising strategies to build a growing, sustainable, cohesive community between Baltimore and Washington, DC. Prior to that she managed the marketing and circulation efforts of the DC Jewish Newspaper, the Washington Jewish Week and led the marketing and fundraising events at the Jewish Community Relations Council of Greater Washington.
In this new role, Meghann will be focusing on strengthening the partnership between the school and the parent body. She will lead our school’s efforts in cultivating a culture of giving and building our development infrastructure as we excitedly plan for our school’s continued growth and expansion while keeping tuition affordability as a top priority.
We are excited to welcome Meghann and her husband Ben, and their wonderful five children (Penina, Shiffy, Shira, Ellie and Moshe) to the Hollywood community.
