Maggie Raiken, a Culver City native, has over 8 years of experience working in fundraising, marketing and development for political campaigns and non-profit organizations. Having attended both The Willows Community School and Marymount High School, Maggie understands the independent school culture and is excited to combine her passion for education with her development experience.
A graduate from the University of Wisconsin, Madison with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science and History, Maggie considers herself a Badger fan for life. Maggie found her love for politics while volunteering in Madison on the 2004 presidential Campaign, and continued to intern and work on various other campaigns throughout her college career.
After college, Maggie found her niche in the fundraising world when she moved to the suburbs of Chicago to work on a congressional campaign. She was an integral part of a team that raised nearly four million dollars to help reelect the only physicist in Congress.
Since moving back to Los Angeles, Maggie served as Development Coordinator at Westside Children’s Center where she supervised a volunteer program of over 700 volunteers; managed individual fundraising efforts; and worked in community relations with local private schools. Most recently, Maggie was the Development Manager at the American Lung Association in California, where she focused on community building for two annual signature fundraising events.
Maggie is thrilled to be part of the Echo Horizon community.
