Eva Kolodner

Regional Director, East (NY)

Prior to joining Global Fund for Women, Eva was a Senior Leadership Gifts Officer at the International Rescue Committee, where she was responsible for stewarding relationships with the IRC’s highest-level individual donors. Before embarking on a career in nonprofit fundraising, Eva was an independent feature film producer in New York. Most notably, she produced the film Boys Don’t Cry, which won an Academy Award for Best Actress in 2000. Eva holds a B.A. in psychology from Yale and from 2006-2015 sat on the board of the Reproductive Health Access Project, which seeks to expand women’s access to reproductive healthcare and abortion by integrating these services into primary care settings. Eva first became connected to and inspired by Global Fund for Women’s incredible network of bold activists when she lived in Thailand from 1992-1994, where she was a volunteer with then grantee-partner EMPOWER Foundation. Eva was named one of Crain’s New York Business’ “40 under 40” in 2002.
