Behind the Scenes: Meet Margaux

Margaux Faris, FotoDC Operations and Development Manager

At FotoDC, my job is to keep the office running smoothly and to engage with our sponsors, funders, donors and strategic partners. I write and edit grants, sponsorship proposals, agreements, and more. I also do a lot of our communications through Mailchimp, including email blasts and FotoNews. It’s a fast-paced but very rewarding position that I love because of the relationship-building involved. One of the most gratifying elements of my job is working with a group of exceptionally talented and committed interns. When I first moved to DC, I spent a year as a Development Fellow with a nonprofit and both the position and my mentors there completely changed my life. Now, I get to be on the other end of the relationship, which is a wonderful feeling – not to mention that each of the FotoDC interns are 100% integral to the success of our FotoWeekDC Festival, and the office as a whole.
