Allentown, Pa., June 26, 2024—Robyn Weaver joined the staff at the Lehigh Valley Community Foundation in June 2024 as Program Officer, Capacity Building. Her primary responsibilities include implementation and co-facilitation of CORE Fellowship and identifying regional nonprofit capacity building needs and solutions.

Prior to joining the Community Foundation, Robyn has held various roles in racial equity and social justice centered capacity building and nonprofit programming including serving as Equity Officer for Pocono Mountains United Way and as Program Manager for Racial and Ethnic Justice at Community Action Lehigh Valley. She has also engaged with local and regional nonprofits providing contracted services including facilitation of We Interrupted, a white-affinity group with Promise Neighborhoods Lehigh Valley and developing Diversity, Equity and Inclusion learning modules for Community Action Association of Pennsylvania. Robyn currently serves as Board Chair for the YWCA of Bethlehem. 

While Robyn is a Lehigh Valley native, she spent years traveling from Philadelphia to Alexandria, Virginia to Corvallis, Oregon, seeking her purpose and taking part-time college courses along the way. Ultimately, she returned home to Allentown where she settled in to complete both her Bachelor and Master of Social Work from Kutztown University. She currently holds graduate certificates in Leadership and Management and Community Development from Kutztown University as well as a certificate in Diversity, Equity and Inclusion from Cornell University.

About the CORE Fellowship

The CORE Fellowship Program is a two-year capacity building process designed to bring diverse Lehigh Valley nonprofit leaders together to center equity in themselves, their relationships, their organizations, and the Lehigh Valley non-profit sector. The program consists of peer-to-peer learning, individual coaching, consultant pairing for an organizational equity discovery process, and funding to support organizational capacity-building. The fellowship is designed for both nonprofit leaders and their organizations to support equitable change in delivering on their personal and professional mission.
