Blair Findlay serves as Rainbows for All Children’s Development Manager. Working under the Executive Director, her responsibilities include grant writing, donor communications and data, assistance with event planning, and communications with Rainbows’ Boards. She specializes in peer-to-peer fundraising and headed Rainbows’ first peer-to-peer campaign in November 2021. Her goal is to diversify Rainbows for all Children’s donor base and keep them engaged in our mission.

Blair began her career in development when she was 14 and co-founded a nonprofit focused on eradicating childhood food insecurity in Kosciusko County, Indiana. Since then, she has worked with nonprofits such as the Indianapolis Museum of Art, Ronald McDonald House Charities, and Indianapolis School on Wheels. Her passions lie with organizations that better the lives of children.

Blair grew up in Winona Lake, Indiana and spent her younger years developing a passion for literature and serving others. She attended Butler University in Indianapolis where she received an undergraduate degree in English Literature and Professional Writing. She spent the first few years after undergrad living and working in Indianapolis, until she completed her Master’s in Management Degree at Butler University in June 2021. She moved to Chicago that summer to begin working with Rainbows. She immediately connected with Rainbows’ mission and is honored to work with such a meaningful organization.

After work you can find Blair exploring her new neighborhood, Rogers Park, alongside her dachshund sidekick, Henry. Her favorite thing to do is explore the beaches and ski slopes of Northern Michigan.
