Emily Kornhauser is the initiatives assistant for Rose Community Foundation. In this role, she supports and coordinates two initiatives: Roots & Branches Foundation and Rose Youth Foundation.
Prior to working at the Foundation, Emily was the community engagement coordinator at The Murie Center in Jackson Hole, Wyoming and program manager of the Small Business Development Center at Sierra Business Council in Truckee, California.
Throughout these experiences, Emily has seen the potential for community growth through youth empowerment. She is propelled to leverage these experiences within the Greater Denver community through grant making, strategic philanthropy and youth leadership.
Beyond her career, Emily finds inspiration around the globe; both in the natural world and through cultural diversity. She has been fortunate enough to travel to the mountains of Argentina, visit the historic cities of Europe, and experience cultural immersion in Israel and India. You can often find Emily digging in the dirt, doing a backbend in yoga or hiking with her dog, Gaia.
Emily is a graduate of the University of Denver with a Bachelor’s Degree in Geography and minors in Sustainability and Spanish.
