Cordy Galligan

Cordy Galligan is the vice president of Marketing and Business Development and has over 20 years’ experience in fundraising and event planning in the nonprofit sector. After graduating first in her class and Phi Beta Kappa at Catholic University, Cordy initially went into the banking industry but soon transferred to managing regional operations for some of Washington, D.C.’s top staffing firms. Her passion for animals led her to create and secure funding for a nonprofit animal rescue group. She segued from this work into freelancing as a fundraiser and event planner for area nonprofits. After a stint at the American Medical Student Association she landed at AAUW (and started the week the stock market crashed in September 2008, a less than auspicious time for business development!). Cordy is most comfortable on stage and has performed in local theater in addition to being a wedding singer. Right now she’s happy to be part of an organization that impacts every family in America and enjoys her work to broaden the AAUW audience.
