Jamie Ducar named to Greater Pittsburgh Nonprofit Partnership Advisory Team

Jamie Ducar, executive director of the engaged campus within Pitt’s Office of Engagement and Community Affairs, was recently elected to the Greater Pittsburgh Nonprofit Partnership (GPNP) Advisory Team for the 2023-25 cohort. She is one of four new members to the team.

The GPNP, which is part of the Forbes Funds, is a growing coalition of more than 500 member organizations across 10 counties working together to unify the nonprofit sector, build capacity and leverage collective resources.

The GPNP Advisory Team represents the diverse membership of the coalition — in mission, size and leadership demographics — and its members are able to speak cogently on the challenges and opportunities facing the nonprofit sector in real-time.

“The nonprofit sector is a big part of my professional journey here in Pittsburgh,” Ducar said. “I’ve had the opportunity to volunteer at the GPNP Summit to build my professional network as an emergent practitioner, joined GPNP as a member as former President of the Young Nonprofit Professionals Network of Pittsburgh and now get to reinforce my work within the engaged campus by being part of the advisory team.

“I’m thrilled that GPNP membership considered me a good fit, and I am eager to support the initiatives and convenings that Emily Francis, program manager for the GPNP, and the entire Forbes Funds team are building to increase capacity across the sector.”
