Cayla Damick

Senior Grant Writer

After nearly a decade in the advertising industry, Cayla shifted her career to mission-based work in the nonprofit sector, specializing in fundraising and development. She holds a master’s degree in Nonprofit Management from Columbia University. Cayla began her fundraising career with the major gifts team at Doctors Without Borders/ Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), focusing on cultivating relationships with high-net-worth individuals. She later transitioned to institutional funders as the Development Manager at the Urban Assembly, where she managed grant writing, reporting, and a portfolio of foundation and corporate funders, while also leading initiatives to engage major and individual donors.

Cayla is excited to return to a humanitarian mission with RFKHR. Coming from a family of lawyers and human rights advocates, she is grateful to contribute to the impactful work at RFKHR and to be connected to the legacy of Robert F. Kennedy.
