ITVS has brought in Alberto Villaluna as the organization’s inaugural Director of Development, to lead ITVS’s fundraising strategies in an effort to grow its visibility and diversify its financial resources. Villaluna comes with over 15 years of experience establishing successful relationships with individual donors, foundations, and corporate partners, including creating dynamic models to increase board and volunteer committee engagement within mission-driven organizations. He most recently served as Corporate Relations Consultant with the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, CA, where he focused on strategies to increase corporate partnerships.
Prior to CHM, Villaluna spent five years as Vice President of the Senior Fellows Network at American Leadership Forum (ALF) - Silicon Valley. During his tenure, Villaluna worked closely with the ALF Board of Directors, the Campaign Cabinet, Network Development and Fellowship committees to increase ALF’s funding. His work with ALF Board and Committee leadership resulted in record increases in tuition revenue, ALF Fellows joining the program, and Senior Fellows engaged with the ALF Network. Leading the ALF fund development campaign, his team raised $4M and his direct efforts led to the largest amount of individual donors giving at the major gift level. Prior to ALF - SV, Villaluna also held the position of Executive Director of the Page Mill YMCA of Silicon Valley.
Alberto Villaluna is an ALF - SV Senior Fellow (Class XXV). He serves on the nonprofit boards of ALearn, an organization committed to helping underprivileged students get to and succeed in college, and FACES Silicon Valley, an organization dedicated to building an inclusive community, free of bias and bigotry through educational programs.
