Chief Operating Officer
With five years of fundraising experience and a lifetime of writing and researching, Aliess joined the Granted Fundraising team in 2019. She is fueled by a passion for the arts, education, and equality and understands fundraising as both a consultant and a nonprofit professional. Aliess has used her strong background in fundraising, community engagement, and corporate sponsorship to support Harvard University’s CS50 R&D, the Salt Lake City Arts Council, the WAM! Boston Film Festival, and Neighborhood House in Salt Lake City. Aliess has also served as a grant reviewer for organizations such as the Utah State Library Division. When not fundraising for worthy nonprofits, you can find Aliess working towards her goal of reading 52 books in 2022 or exploring her new-ish home of Vancouver, Washington.
