Portrait of Molly, smiling in front of a brick wall
Molly Fannin
Director of Development

Molly Fannin dreamed of being a multilingual CIA agent who would use the Army Survival Manual on spy adventures around the world. When she realized it wouldn't be as glamorous as the TV show, Alias, she opted to earn her International Studies BA and Nonprofit Management MS from DePaul University and dabble in speaking French in Paris. Eventually, she learned about professional fundraising and worked her way through nonprofit development in a variety of roles at DePaul University, YMCA of the USA, and most recently, the Reverb Foundation. Molly learns as many hobbies as she can to guard against of her biggest fear: functional fixedness. She attended cooking school at Kendall College, embroidery class at Lill Street, listens to as many podcasts as possible, and bikes regularly to discover new parts of Chicago. The rest of her time is spent as a skater and executive board member with the Windy City Rollers roller derby team.
