Jill K. Alcott



Vice President for Strategic Development

Jill, a highly skilled and passionate non-profit development and fundraising professional, is the Vice President for Strategic Development at Powered by Professionals.


During the course of her career, she has worked with a wide range of non-profits to help them broaden and deepen their constituencies and raise funds, from start-ups to established organizations – and everything in between. Her activities include local, national and global campaigns and events such as World Wildlife Fund, Save Our Everglades, American Tap Dance Foundation, Atlantic Salmon Federation, American Museum of Fly Fishing, Winston Preparatory School, Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing and Coalition for the Homeless, among many others.


After graduating from Barnard College, Columbia University, Jill launched her non-profit development career at the Wildlife Conservation Society’s Central Park Zoo (WCS-CPZ). There, she coordinated the fundraising Galas and all other special events for the re-opening of the Central Park Zoo (eleven events in ten days); established, marketed and managed the Society’s special events department (headquartered at CPZ); inaugurated its Corporate Entertainment and Junior Committee programs; forged innovative strategic fundraising partnerships, and later, managed the major gifts and corporate development programs.


On the PBP team, Jill works on many fronts to introduce new services from PBP’s tool-kit that will re-invigorate fundraising and continue to generate increased success for our clients.
