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.

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.
