Carrie Heider Grant
Carrie’s approach to community improvement is people-centric. A community’s richest asset is always its people, and all efforts to find equitable and effective solutions are built by those who live in the community.
In her role as Program Coordinator with Nonprofit Network, Carrie strives to understand the needs of nonprofits in order to develop and deliver the most critical tools and resources. She manages marketing, social media, and public workshops, and is responsible for creating the content that will help nonprofits move their needle. As an architect of bridges between nonprofits and Nonprofit Network, Carrie’s role is to ensure that Nonprofit Network is relevant and accessible.
Carrie entered the nonprofit sector professionally in 2011 as a Research Assistant for the University of Louisville, where she was a member of the team responsible for evaluating Louisville’s use of the $7.8 million CDC-funded Communities Putting Prevention to Work Grant. Carrie is actively engaged with her community as a volunteer and advocate for equity. She was named one of Jackson's 30 and Under recipients in 2016 and serves the City of Jackson as a member of the Civil Service Commission.
