Vera Grobes

Donor Data and Communications Manager


As Donor Data and Communications Manager, Vera’s expertise is in the details. She makes sense of the vast network of data that allows Natural Lands to communicate effectively with our supporters, clients, and future friends.

Vera has more than two decades of experience in nonprofit database management and development services. Most recently, she held this role at the Please Touch Museum.

Vera’s favorite place outdoors is anywhere near water because water induces calmness and creativity. “A study showed that people who live near the ocean report feeling less stress and better health than those who don’t,” she says.

Vera holds a BS in Art Education from Temple University’s Tyler School of Art. She received continuing education credits for the AFP Fundamentals of Fundraising course at Villanova University.
