Jessica Ludwig recently joined JCF as our new Grants Officer where she works closely with some of our most engaged donors as well as the organizations they support. Jessica oversees new grant processes and helps to guide us in grantmaking services on behalf of our generous donors. She started after nearly 20 years in the nonprofit industry, working in museums and informal education both nationally and abroad. Having worked on both sides of philanthropy, she brings a unique insight into the needs of nonprofit organizations as well as the many ways in which the community can support.

A Southern California native, Jessica received her master’s degree in International Museum Studies from the University of Gothenburg, Sweden, and her bachelor’s degree in Anthropology and professional certificate in Grant Writing both from San Diego State University. She has family nearby and a sister in Colorado, and enjoys spending her time watching soccer, practicing yoga, and soaking up the sun whenever possible.
