Emma Carmody

Development Strategist

Emma Carmody, Development Strategist, works to grow the organization by building and cultivating philanthropic relationships with institutional and individual funders dedicated to creating a more equitable California. Emma manages funder data, crafts funder communications, and works closely with the Director of Advancement to advance the Budget Center’s mission by strengthening the organization’s capacity.

Before joining the Budget Center in fall 2021, Emma worked as a development intern on the State Fiscal Policy team at the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities in Washington, D.C. In this role, she aimed to strengthen the fundraising programs of state-based organizations across the country by helping to provide development resources and supporting the Center’s regranting efforts. She also served as the editor-in-chief for her university’s independent student newspaper. She holds a bachelor’s degree in economics and international business with a minor in Spanish from Saint Louis University. 

Emma is a proud midwesterner having grown up in St. Paul, Minnesota but has loved getting to explore California as she’s settled into her new home in Sacramento. Outside of the office, she loves to travel, find new favorite local restaurants, and practice film photography.
