Evan Cooper

Development Associate


Evan joined VAI in August 2019 after earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science and German from Grinnell College. During his time at Grinnell, Evan worked as an intern in the Department of Development and Alumni Relations, and he is excited to continue building his knowledge of all things related to nonprofit development. As the Development Associate, Evan supports our team through work related to individual giving, prospect research, communications, and corporate/foundation relations. In addition to English, Evan is fluent in both German and Romanian.


Outside of work, if he’s not reading by the lake, you’re likely to find Evan with friends at a local coffee shop or craft taproom.
