Meet the People Behind the Platform | Rachel Haytt

Welcome to JustFund’s People Behind the Platform series, where we introduce our incredible team! Today, we are thrilled to introduce Rachel Haytt, Customer Engagement Manager.


Prior to joining the JustFund Team in 2019, I worked in a variety of nonprofit and public interest settings centered around education organizing and advocacy work, and focused on expanding youth voice and leadership across NYC schools. 

As the Customer Engagement Manager, I work closely with the CX and Product teams to identify new features and automations to improve the platform for our users. I have learned an incredible amount during my four years growing with JustFund, and I am passionate about building JustFund to challenge inequitable funding structures in philanthropy, remove the application burden from grassroots organizations, and streamline moving money to movement work.

Outside of JustFund, I enjoy exploring NYC, listening to music, spending time in Prospect Park, and trying new bars and restaurants with friends!
