Krissia Bonilla

Krissia joined the Sustain Charlotte team in April 2023 as the Donor Specialist. She attended CUNY Hunter College in Manhattan, where she earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science and a Minor in Human Rights. A lifelong New York City resident, Krissia was civically engaged from a young age and passionate about uplifting community members through education and empowerment. She eagerly took on opportunities to volunteer on political campaigns, intern at various nonprofits, and work for the NYC Department of Education. She credits her background as an immigrant, coupled with growing up in NYC, for her strong sense of empathy and altruism. A recent arrival to Charlotte, Krissia is excited to embed herself into the Charlotte community and contribute to its sustainable growth. As Sustain Charlotte’s Donor Specialist, she is a firm believer that every contribution, no matter how small or large, can make a huge difference and strives to make every donor recognize how instrumental they are.
