Becca Jolliff

Senior Grant Writer
Hometown: Newberg, OR

Becca has a passion for social justice and over four years of nonprofit experience. Prior to joining the Elevate team, she worked at Horton’s Kids, a community-based organization focused on empowering DC children to graduate from high school ready for post-secondary success. In her role as Senior Development Associate, Becca raised half of the organization’s budget through government and foundation grants and helped out with programs as a tutor.

Becca graduated magna cum laude from Willamette University with a BA in English and Spanish. She was the recipient of the Mollie Mack Prize for most outstanding graduating woman student in English and is a member of Phi Beta Kappa.

Originally from Oregon, Becca moved to DC for a year-long volunteer program, where she worked as a counselor on a hotline for military personnel. When not writing grants, she can be found reading mystery novels, going on leisurely bike rides, and hiking in the Shenandoah.

What are you most excited to do in DC?

I love all the summer activities DC has to offer – outdoor movies, festivals, and free public pools.

What's your favorite way to spend a Sunday afternoon?

Going for a long hike in the Shenandoah and ending the day with a gigantic dinner.
