Danielle Tolley

Development Coordinator

Pronouns: she/her

Danielle supports both NAMA and our sister organization, the National Family Farm Coalition, with fundraising and development efforts.

Having worn many hats within the non-profit world for nearly 20 years from arts organizations to community development organizations, she draws on her varied experiences to help NAMA approach development from an authentic and equitable lens. Prior to joining the NAMA team, Danielle co-founded and served as the Executive Director for The Center for the Spiritual Journey, a non-profit working at the intersection of spirituality, education, and social justice. As a former sketch comedian, writer and producer, she seeks to infuse a bit of irreverence into our work as a way to help not take ourselves too seriously (even though we’re doing serious work), recognizing the healing power of laughter and transformative possibilities of storytelling. She received a BFA in Acting from Elon University in North Carolina and is originally from Cleveland, OH. She lives on Cape Cod with her husband and two children and is a member of the fisherfolk band, SeaFire Kids.
