Pam’s expertise was invaluable as Solidaire made the transition from being a fiscally sponsored organization to an independent 501(c)(3). Pam helped prepare the financial sections of our application to the IRS, set up our accounting and financial management systems – including cloud-based ledgers and payments systems – and helped think through and establish our financial policies, and protocols.
Director of Finance & Operations
Pam stepped into a high level finance role in our organization while I was on parental leave, and did an excellent job supporting financial management overall while also making sure our fiscal compliance audit with a funder was smooth and successful! She was communicative, thorough and overall wonderful to work with! She showed enthusiasm and real care for our organization’s mission, staff and members.
Deputy Director of Administration
Causa Justa: Just Cause
Pam is such a joy to work with. She went above and beyond for us while stepping in as a temporary high-level finance professional to support the family leave of an executive level staff. Pam is flexible, innovative, and worked effectively with our team during a time of enormous change for the organization (and at the start of the pandemic!).
Interim Executive Director
Diabetes Youth Families (DYF)
Money is kinda funny and for Black undocumented immigrant folkx it also carries years of fear and trauma, that’s why as new co-directors of a grassroots organization we needed someone aligned with our values to lead us through our season of change. Pamela has guided us on financial practices, empowered us to set up systems that will allow fiscal sustainability and provided excellent communications support along the way. Pamela’s imprint on UndocuBlack will last for years to come and mean a more just and equitable future for our members all across the country.
