Zunairis Velazquez

Development Assistant

[email protected]

Meet Zunairis. Zunairis works on all of the development and fundraising work at CRE – from grant proposals, report writing and individual donor communication, to fundraising campaigns and events. She comes to CRE with an interest in understanding what keeps community-centered programs sustainable to further their impact.

Find out a little bit more. Zunairis has worked as a legal assistant to an Immigration Attorney, where worked closely with various clients, particularly in communities that many of CRE’s clients serve. Most recently, she interned at Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) as an Education Operations Intern, supporting the logistical needs of BAM’s educational programming and as a Matching Specialist for The Fresh Air Fund – matching NYC children with Host Families in 14 states and Canada. Zunairis spent one year volunteering at Reading Partners, and has a B.A. from The City College of New York in both English Literature and Theater.

One last little bit. She will do just about anything to indulge in a piece of sour-cream flan again (except attempt to make such a delicacy herself!)
