Emily Allyson

Senior Validation Associate

Emily's Headshot

I am Emily Allyson and I am a Senior Validation Associate on the Grant Services team. I serve as a liaison between charities and our validation and application process.

I am originally from New Hampshire, but I graduated in December 2021 from George Washington University with a B.A. in International Affairs and a minor in Arabic. When I was 15 I began volunteering for an organization in Uganda which rehabilitated women and children affected by war. That experience has guided me through my work at CAF America and continues to help me understand the big picture of the validation and application process every day.

One of my greatest passions is traveling and learning new languages. On my bucket list is to go to all seven continents (only three left!)
