Allison Hahn is the assistant director of Advancement and Alumni Services for the Winship Cancer Institute at Emory University, where she plans and executes fundraising events to benefit cancer research.
“I think that cancer affects everyone, whether its yourself, a family member, loved one or friend. I love working with people to fundraise for something that’s so prevalent in all our lives,” Hahn said. “Fundraising for it through events planning allows me to combine all my passions into one.”
A native Atlantan, Hahn attended Walton High School and was an active and engaged member of BBYO. She left the South temporarily to earn her degree in sociology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
Upon returning to Atlanta, Hahn worked in development at Jewish HomeLife Communities before joining the Winship team at Emory. She is a member of the Association of Fundraising Professionals Atlanta Chapter and the Young Nonprofit Professionals Network of Atlanta, from which she received the 30 Under 30 Nonprofit Leader Award in 2018.
Hahn participated in the LEADS program through the Jewish Federation of Greater Atlanta, has hosted and attended many OneTable Shabbat dinners, and served on the Atlanta Jewish Film Festival’s film selection committee.
“From attending events such as The Tasting and Havinagala to participating in meaningful programs such as LEADS and seeing movies at the Atlanta Jewish Film Festival, there is no shortage of happenings in the Atlanta Jewish community,” Hahn said.
The Brookhaven resident loves to play tennis, bake, and travel.
