Amelia Wu

Senior Director of Development

Amelia joins the team with passion for fundraising as a vehicle for social change. She has over 15 years of both fundraising and program experience with a range of international nonprofit organizations, including Room to Read, the Asia Foundation, Give2Asia, and six years from 1999-2005 on the Programs side of the Global Fund for Women. Amelia believes that the Global Fund plays a special role in the international women’s rights movement and in the field of feminist philanthropy, which makes it a special place to do fundraising. Drawing on her experience as both a fundraiser and a programmer, she hopes to mobilize networks and resources worldwide to help the Global Fund and the international women’s movement achieve its goals. Amelia graduated with a masters in public policy from the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University, where she focused on international development and political economy, as well as a bachelor of arts in economics from Cornell University. She is also the mother of three girls, who keep her centered and motivate her work to make the world a better place for women and girls.
