As an Associate, Sydney assists with fundraising events, conducting research, and carrying out development plans for Orr Group’s nonprofit partners. She works alongside project teams by preparing materials, collaborating within meetings, and helping to execute deliverables.


Sydney recently graduated from James Madison University where she studied Justice Studies, as well as History and Political Science, creating a unique perspective on how the three subjects intertwine with one another at both the domestic and international level. Her previous studies allowed for an exploration of nonprofits in a global setting, and she is eager to continue learning about the field.

While at James Madison University, she gained fundraising experience through her sorority, Alpha Delta Pi, more specifically with their work with the Ronald McDonald House Charities.
