Josh Schaier serves as the director of development for Jewish Educational Loan Fund and has helped connect countless people to the organization since arriving in late 2015. He has proved to be a go-getter while implementing ideas that meet JELF’s goals and increase fundraising.

Previously, Schaier served as a litigation paralegal for Simpson Thacher and Bartlett, an individual giving associate for New York’s 92nd Street Y and a program administrator for the Center for Global Affairs at New York University.

In addition to volunteering with the Corporate Volunteer Council of Atlanta and Atlanta BeltLine, Schaier is a SUNY-Binghamton alumni ambassador and member of The Temple. He was a research fellow in graduate school at NYU. Schaier lives in Kirkwood with his wife, Dara, the founder of BOOP (Built out of Paper).

“Atlanta’s Jewish community is a vibrant and enthusiastic group of professionals, and I am certain it will continue to influence the growing sectors in this city within the next 20 years,” Schaier said.
