Diane Nguyen

Director, Donor Engagement

As a director of donor engagement, Diane partners with a portfolio of donors to help them achieve their philanthropic goals. She aspires to help fund advisors with their giving and deepen relationships by providing responsive and elevated services. 
 
Diane first joined SVCF as a philanthropy associate, where she managed SVCF's online donor system and nonprofit investment services, executed exclusive donor engagement events and implemented a new approach to world-class service. Prior to joining SVCF, Diane worked in a variety of positions within the financial services industry, focusing on operational compliance and building strong member relations. She holds a bachelor’s degree in sociology from the University of California Santa Cruz. 
 
Her passion for advocacy and direct action has led her as far as Washington, D.C. to champion the equal rights of Asian-American Pacific Islanders and to New Orleans’ Lower 9th Ward to rebuild after Hurricane Katrina, and back again to the Bay Area working with Veggielution and St. Francis Soup Kitchen. Diane spends her free time either with family or crafting, and enjoys working out and early morning free runs.
