project management and a background of working in service for over a decade. Her nonprofit
experience includes working for one of the largest food banks in the country, Greater Chicago Food

During her tenure, Shefali is most proud of a few signature accomplishments for Giving DuPage. Since
2013, the organization has increased volunteer engagement by 250% and grown their presence on social
media networks by 165% on Facebook and over 300% on Twitter. The best part is that over 80% of the

And Giving DuPage is just getting started as they embark on their largest public campaign centered on
service in the year ahead.
