Shannon McCracken


Shannon is leading TNPA’s launch and rapid growth.  Previously she spent two years as Charity Navigator’s Chief Development Officer, facilitating communication with nonprofit organizations and dramatically increasing resources to support successful implementation of a new strategic plan.  She now serves on their board of directors. She spent 17 years with Special Olympics International, most recently as Vice President of Donor Development, building and managing a multichannel individual fundraising program.  Shannon has been an engaged member of the DMA Nonprofit Federation, with past roles as Chairperson of the Advisory Council and Chair of the Ethics Committee. Home is outside the hustle of D.C. in rural Maryland — although with two teenagers and a rescued black lab, it’s really just hustle of a different variety.
