Diane Lai

Development Officer

As a development officer, Diane works closely with new individual, corporate and nonprofit donors who are interested in partnering with SVCF to further their philanthropic interests. She actively manages and stewards such clients so they can open new funds, initiate gift transactions and engage in other forms of charitable giving. 

Diane received her bachelors degree in business administration with an emphasis in marketing from San Francisco State University. Since then she has worked in advertising as well as nonprofit donor recruitment. Most recently, she spent some time volunteering in Thailand with the Warm Heart Foundation working on their microenterprise efforts.

In her spare time, Diane loves to travel around the world with her family and friends. She also has a passion for dining out and exploring the ever-changing restaurant scene in San Francisco, a city she has always called home.
