Donor and Fund Services Associate
Tejas Iyer is the donor and fund services associate at Rose Community Foundation. He helps implement a data-informed approach to all aspects of the Foundation’s philanthropic services work, including creating gift entries and acknowledgement, generating reports to support the organization in its mission, and processing grants from donor-advised funds, giving circles and other initiatives. He works closely with the Philanthropic Services team in supporting donors and fundholders.
Iyer is a longtime Denver resident and previously worked at RedLine Contemporary Art Center, where he held a number of roles in events, membership and database coordination, gaining deep familiarity with the city’s arts and nonprofit ecosystems. He also interned for Colorado State Senator Kerry Donovan and helped her office launch and support the state’s first annual Colorado Public Lands Day.
He holds a master’s degree in human rights studies from Columbia University and a bachelor’s degree in political science from the University of Colorado. In his free time, Iyer enjoys cycling around the city’s bike paths, discovering new podcasts, and will never say no to a bowl of good phở.
