Rebecca Pak, Director of Donor Engagement 

Rebecca Pak has called WPA home since stepping off the plane from Brisbane where she worked for one of Australia’s largest retailers.  As the Director of Institutional Giving, Rebecca managed WPA’s portfolio of 40+ foundations and corporate partners from 2011 to 2018 and grew private fundraising revenue by 30%.  In her new role as the Director of Donor Engagement, Rebecca aims to grow WPA’s community of individual donors and build relationships with businesses, inspiring them to partner with WPA to address the cycles of trauma, poverty, and incarceration that devastate women and families in New York City.  When she’s not engaging with partners to identify opportunities for clients, you can find Rebecca leading an event or campaign with WPA’s junior board, the Emerging Philanthropists.  She holds a Bachelor of Criminology and Criminal Justice from Griffith University. Rebecca a.k.a. Bek lives in Long Island City with her partner.

"I credit WPA for helping me through very difficult times. I am grateful that I got the chance to feel, hurt, cry, confront, heal, and change."
