2020 Year in Review

It’s been quite a year, but we made it!

2020 brought some of the most challenging moments we’ve experienced, both personally and professionally—as well as some of the most rewarding moments of connection and growth. Here are a few of the highlights.

2 New Team Members

The Beth Interactive team grew over the past year as we welcomed Jenna Cohen, our new Fundraising and Marketing Strategist—as well as our stellar summer intern, Emma Bjeldanes.

Jenna CohenJenna (pictured left) joined our team in October with six years of experience in the nonprofit sector, plus a passion for storytelling and community building—which she has put to use right away in support of our clients.

Emma is a junior at Pepperdine University. During her time with Beth Interactive, she developed a research project to help us understand the giving preferences and habits of Gen Z donors. Thanks for your great work, Emma!
