New Development Director Begins at UConn Hillel

UConn Hillel is excited to welcome Danielle (Dani) Bergman as Development Director. She is a seasoned development professional with close to 10 years of Jewish communal fundraising experience. She has worked in multiple key development roles serving the senior population in New York at Selfhelp Community Services, Inc. and DOROT. Most recently, she served as a development executive at Yachad, a Jewish-focused, disability inclusion agency. In these roles, Bergman focused on all areas of development, including individual giving, online fundraising, event planning, leadership development and grant management.

Investing in Jewish communal life, Bergman sits on the Board of Trustees for GrowTorah, a nonprofit that aims to cultivate a more passionate, compassionate and sustainable Jewish future driven by Torah values.

Bergman is excited to bring her experience to UConn Hillel and looks forward to working with students, alumni, staff and leadership to support and grow Hillel’s vital programming.

She graduated with a B.A. in English Language and Literature from the University of Maryland in 2011, where Hillel played an important role in her college career. While she currently lives in New Jersey with her husband and son, she looks forward to soon calling Connecticut home. She is an avid runner and serves as a running coach in her spare time.
