Advisory Board Member
Chair of Philanthropic Development
Jennifer Driscoll is currently a philanthropic advisor for the Driscoll Family Foundation (DFF), a 501c3 qualified supporting organization of the Silicon Valley Community Foundation. With the increase in the prevalence of tick-borne disease and the inequities that Lyme patients face, DFF is exploring the area of Lyme and how it might help to change the narrative and outcomes of the disease.
As the Chair of Philanthropic Development for Invisible International, Jennifer will focus on increasing outreach efforts to philanthropic foundations to assist Invisible International in its efforts to identify, cultivate, and secure funding for future initiatives that support its mission. Jennifer’s role not only includes coordinating fund development, but working collaboratively with the Invisible International team to enhance the organization’s long-term strategic fundraising goals. Jennifer places an emphasis on the need to both foster and maintain positive, collaborative, and productive partnerships that meet the financial needs of Invisible International and optimize donor satisfaction.
As a survivor of Lyme, the goal of Invisible International to create a Tick Borne Illness Data Repository which aims to unravel the causes and discover treatments for tick-borne diseases resonates with Jennifer. Her personal experience catapulted her into the world of advocacy and philanthropy, and solidified her long-lasting commitment to increasing awareness about tick-borne disease and finding affordable avenues for treatment.
Jennifer will earn her Master of Science in Global Studies and International Relations from Northeastern University in June 2021. She looks forward to her work and future endeavors with Invisible.
