Job Title: 
Director of Development

Davey brings more than two decades of experience in fundraising and development in the Bay Area to the role of Director of Development for the Diocese of California, marrying two of his great passions: fundraising and the Reign of God. He is a faithful member of Holy Innocents’ Episcopal Church, volunteers with several nonprofits in the Bay Area, and loves shopping at the many great farmers' markets in the City. A Michigander by birth, Davey has made San Francisco his home for the last twenty years. A life-long student of economics, policy, and theology, Davey seeks to make connections between money and meaning. In his spare time, he picks banjo, enjoys cooking for friends, and is always dreaming of his next camping trip.
