The newest member of the Notebook's staff team, Allison Budschalow, is also its first development and membership associate.
A key focus of this new part-time position will be coordinating the Notebook's fast-growing membership program. (If you are not a member, you can join online.)
Budschalow, who just joined the staff in May, has extensive nonprofit and development experience and a passion for the issues we address. She has worked at American Friends Service Committee and Friends of the Children, and she volunteers on the grassroots fundraising committee of the Media Mobilizing Project.
She is a product of the Philadelphia public schools, having attended McCall School and Central High School.
She recently completed a master's degree in Sustainable Businesses and Communities from Goddard College. She's also the mother of a 2-year-old.
"I'm excited to assist the Notebook in providing comprehensive information about public education in Philly to those of us who need it the most – parents, educators, and students," she said.
