Rebecca Viser

Director of Communications
Council on Foundations
Email Address:

Prior to joining the Council, Rebecca worked at the Brookings Institution, starting in a content strategy role before moving into digital product management. Her work there covered a wide variety of projects, with the most notable being overseeing the effort to rebuild, which included redesigning and replatforming the site.

Before Brookings, she worked at GoodWeave USA, an organization to ensure rugs are made without child labor that was founded by Nobel Peace Prize winner Kailash Satyarthi. There she managed social media, newsletters, and the website, as well as overseeing the logistics for a travelling photography exhibit. She has spent the vast majority of her career in communications roles at non-profits, with the exception of the brief stint at Barnes & Noble and the time she spent earning her Master of Arts in English, and has become more and more obsessed with digital strategy. She’s done everything from managing, and occasionally coding, websites to overseeing social media to designing fact sheets to organizing a conference to creating newsletters to editing reports. She is strongly for the Oxford comma and against dangling participles.

Rebecca is a recovering English major, a former Air Force brat, a southerner, and current Maryland resident. She is a mezzo who is forced to sing first soprano, and has too many hobbies, including knitting, weaving, spinning, sewing, and photography. She loves to travel and is obsessed with Iceland.
