Marcy Mamiya supports the Director of Major Gifts for the Hoover Institution at Stanford University. After several years teaching English in Japan, followed by a stint as a marketing and product manager at a CRM start-up, she landed at Stanford, managing executive-level searches for the Provost and working on the university’s accreditation. She joined Hoover’s Major Gifts team in 2012 and enjoys stewarding the institution’s board members and major donors.
Marcy has been involved with the Silicon Valley Down Syndrome Network (SVDSN) since 2004, shortly after the birth of her son. She has served the organization in various roles over the years, but has found her passion in creating programming for self advocates and increasing collaboration with existing community organizations to expand inclusive opportunities. She also serves on the advisory boards for the Stanford Master’s Program in Human Genetics & Genetic Counseling and Sun Camp, a summer day camp for children with Down syndrome and their siblings.
Marcy has a B.A. in English with a concentration on teaching English in Secondary Schools from U.C. Berkeley.
