Achieving LGBTQ Equality Through Litigation, Legislation, Policy, and Public Education

Nancy Purcell

Annual Fund Manager

Nancy is a fundraising professional with 20+ years experience working for progressive organizations and an unshakeable belief we can move mountains if we work together. Joining NCLR’s development staff in January 2018 was like coming home, as NCLR was her client 25 years ago during an early stop in her career. From LGBTQ, women’s, and minority rights to the environment and animal protection, from international development to feeding local communities in need, if it involves making the world a better and more just place, she’s probably worked on it at some point in her life.

Nancy spent her early years in Reading, Pennsylvania – home of the pretzel and one-time outlet store capital of the world. Stints in Massachusetts and Washington DC followed before she found her home and love of her life in San Francisco. A bit of a sports nut, she will bend your ear about the San Francisco Giants or the Golden State Warriors, and unless you have a couple hours to spare, don’t get her started talking about her cat, Peaches – Nancy really won’t shut up about her if given an opening. She also enjoys urban hikes in the city and day trips outside of it, reveling in the natural beauty of the Bay Area.

Will you help NCLR end harmful 'conversion therapy' in more states like we did in Utah?
