As You Sow is proud to welcome Sarah Milne as our new Development Director, where she will spearhead our fundraising and development efforts.
“I’m excited to be part of As You Sow’s work promoting environmental and social corporate responsibility,” said Milne. “I look forward to all the positive change we’re able to create!”
Milne comes to us from Chabot Space & Science Center, where as head of Development she was responsible for raising the science museum’s budget through grants, gifts, and galas. Between Chabot and As You Sow, she served as Senior Consultant to the Sierra Club’s Beyond Oil Campaign, writing reports on tar sands-derived fuels in corporate fleets and on Enbridge’s Alberta Clipper tar sands pipeline. She has also written on carbon financing for the Big Sur Land Trust and on REDD+ carbon offset baseline issues. Before pivoting to the environment and climate change, she was Director of Marketing at a venture-funded tech start-up, and worked in financial analysis, marketing, and product management at Chevron and Ampex. She holds a B.A. from U.C. Berkeley with Highest Honors in Rhetoric; an M.B.A from Cornell; and a graduate certificate in Environmental Policy from the Monterey Institute of International Studies, a graduate school of Middlebury College.
