Vice President for Community Impact

Why I Joined The Community Foundation

“To be part of a dedicated team of donors, volunteers and nonprofit professionals committed to working together to make our community healthier, safer and more compassionate. True change comes from more than hard work. It also requires fellow men and women to work together to help and heal those in need. I am humbled to join the Community Foundation’s rich 50-year history of community partnerships and service.”

Before The Community Foundation

Daniel has curated a two-decade career as a trusted non-profit executive in philanthropy, program development, and nonprofit management. Prior to joining the Community Foundation, he spent past seven years working on behalf of Allegany Franciscan Ministries as their Regional Vice President for Miami-Dade, dedicating a large portion of his time to a place-based philanthropic initiative that addressed the root causes of economic and health disparities experienced in Overtown, a historic African American neighborhood in Miami.

He has championed various causes including jail and prison reform, affordable housing, access to medical care for the chronically homeless, HIV/AIDS prevention, and LGBT rights. He has spoken at local, regional, and national conferences, and worked with national think tanks to develop solutions to some of our nation’s most pressing community problems, including a trip to the White House to present to the Department of Justice, Department of Housing and Urban Development, and Department of Commerce.

Daniel received an undergraduate degree in psychology and theater from Yale University, as well as a master’s in social work from Barry University in Miami.
