40 Under 40: Raychel Robbins

Raychel Robbins, 38, is a consultant specializing in religious and educational nonprofits at Atlanta Jewish Music Festival.

Raychel Robbins is a consultant specializing in religious and educational nonprofits who holds a master’s of education in leadership from Florida Atlantic University and certificates in nonprofit administration and change management.

Originally from South Florida, Raychel has worked in fund and resource development for colleges and universities, national nonprofits, Hadassah and Teach for America, and for local organizations, Greenfield Hebrew Academy and JELF.

She is a past president of the Atlanta Jewish Music Festival, and for the past 18 months has been working with the festival on the leadership transition. Under her guidance, AJMF was awarded an Arts Innovation and Management grant from Bloomberg Philanthropies.

Her other clients include: Congregation Beth Shalom, Creating Connected Communities, Sandy Springs Education Force and the Atlanta Israel Coalition.

“In the 10-plus years since moving to Atlanta, it’s been my pleasure to work with so many wonderful Jewish organizations,” Robbins said. “I admit that I have a soft spot and a passion for helping out the ‘little guys’ and a lot of those smaller organizations aren’t very small anymore.”

Raychel is also an active volunteer, serving on the Young Women’s Cabinet of the Hadassah national board and as a member of the Gwinnett County Animal Control Hearing Board.

“I could not be prouder being both an active participant and catalyst for Jewish Atlanta,” Robbins said. “Seeing it grow and thrive, I am certain that the groundwork we lay today will ensure that the Jewish people and Israel are better off tomorrow than today.”

She lives in Peachtree Corners with her husband, Peter Scourtis, stepchildren Killian, Nolan and Arden, and their Chihuahua-terrier mix, Gefilte Flash.
