Robyn Sharp

Planned Giving Director

Robyn Sharp

Robyn works with donors who wish to remember the community after their lifetimes through planned giving. In this role, she works in close partnership with donors and their professional advisors, particularly estate attorneys, to establish planned gifts which reflect donors’ passions for creating impact or honoring loved ones. She stewards current planned giving donors and works with trustees, attorneys and nonprofit organizations to settle matured estates.

Robyn began her career at The Foundation managing the San Diego Regional Disaster Fund following the 2007 Southern California Wildfires, for which she earned a commendation for leadership from the California State Legislature. More recently, she managed The Foundation’s corporate and mitigation clients, providing strategic program development and grantmaking support for employee engagement, sponsorships and other charitable activities.

She has also worked in community relations with CareFusion, a global medical technology company, and community development with the San Diego Association of Governments.

Robyn graduated from the University of Maryland with a BS in Psychology and American Cultures and holds a Certificate in Fund Raising Management from Indiana University.
