Sarah Stern

Grant Services Officer

I am Sarah Stern, a Validation Officer on the Grant Services Team. My role in validating charities allows me to directly support CAF America’s ability to make grants worldwide. I have spent most of my professional career cultivating a deep understanding of the laws that govern international grantmaking and am specialized in both Expenditure Responsibility and Equivalency Determination reviews. My favorite aspect of the job are the stories of positive, impactful change that can result from a single grant. It is a wonderful feeling to have assisted someone in their effort to make the world a better place. And it is certainly a privilege to work with and learn from some of the brightest minds in Philanthropy. 

Outside of CAF America you can find me jamming on guitar, hiking in Virginia’s beautiful blue ridge mountains or stuck in baggage claim because traveling is a gateway to amazing adventures!
