Gil Zamora, VP of Institutional & Strategic Advancement

Originally from California, Gil has a wealth of experience in the nonprofit sector, beginning at seventeen years-old when he started as an AmeriCorps Member at Jumpstart San Francisco. Since then, Gil has overseen programs, grant management, directing events, as well as planning, marketing, and executing successful fundraising campaigns. Previously, Gil was at HealthConnect One, a national nonprofit that works to address racial and social inequity in maternal and child health by establishing and sustaining community health worker programs across the country.

Gil moved to Chicago to pursue his Masters in Fine Arts in Creative Writing at Roosevelt University, which he completed in 2010. He also completed his Masters in Nonprofit Administration at North Park University.  Outside of his nonprofit career, he has had poetry and prose published in literary journals, including Coe Review, Carnival and Inlandia Journal. Gil is a dedicated Tio to his nieces and nephew. He has a passion for music, good coffee, and fitness, especially running.

Gil strongly believes that the programming and services offered is vital to women and their families in Chicago. He is especially motivated by the organization’s commitment to Latina leadership development, believing that in the current national political landscape, advocating for real change in our communities will require strong, vocal leaders and that representation truly does matter.
