Tara Noland

Ignite Philanthropy welcomes Tara Noland as Vice President of Client Services to our growing Non-Profit Services division. Tara was most recently executive director of the GreenLight Fund.

Tara brings to the Ignite team over 10 years of non-profit sector expertise. Under Tara’s leadership, the GreenLight Fund expanded to Cincinnati in 2016 and raised $2.5 million in “venture” funds from 25 local investors to deploy proven innovative programs to address some of the region’s most challenging poverty-related issues. Prior to the GreenLight Fund, Tara served as 4C for Children’s director of development.

Tara will provide strategic planning, fundraising and campaign management support to help non-profits raise capital to achieve greater impact in our community.

Tara has a tremendous track record of providing innovative leadership and forming collaborative partnerships to raise and leverage capital to solve some of our most pressing community challenges. We are excited to welcome her diverse skills to the team to expand our capacities and further help our clients reach their goals.

I’m so thrilled to be joining the fantastic team at Ignite. I’m eager to support local organizations and to help Ignite in their work to develop new and innovative ways to harness resources and serve clients and the community.
