Gina has an extensive background working directly in the nonprofit sector since 1986 – combined with extensive knowledge and experience in technology.
Back in her organizing days, just out of college, Gina was Regional Director for INFACT (now Corporate Accountability International) and ran both the Upper Midwest and New England Campaign Centers. Under her direction, both campaign centers tripled their staffing, activist base and fundraising base. Later, Gina worked as Director of Development for the Nobel Peace Prize winning organizations International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War (IPPNW) and Physicians for Human Rights (PHR). At both organizations, Gina’s work centered on establishing major and individual giving programs for the organization ranging from direct marketing to personal solicitations to international fundraising effort.
In 1996, Gina began Martin/VanderLoop Associates, a Boston-based consulting agency that helped nonprofits such as Bridge Over Troubled Waters, Grassroots International, and Greenpeace USA build specific fundraising programs. Gina also served as Director of Non-Profit Development and Acting Vice President for the General Systems Corporation, a database service provider based in Virginia.
Throughout her career, Gina has supervised large scale data conversions and has helped organizations integrate systems efficiently and cost-effectively.
In her spare time, Gina spends time volunteering with local community based nonprofit organizations and runs fundraising/organizing training sessions. She can also be heard weekly playing guitar in ROI’s Company band.
