Hala Al-Shawaf holds a B.F.A. in Art History and Studio Art (Metalsmithing and Textiles) from Moore College of Art and Design. She maintains an active studio practice in Moorestown, NJ, and shows her work through Philadelphia-area galleries and the Moorestown ArtWalk—a monthly event that connects local businesses, artists, and non-profits. Hala channels her passion for finding creative ways to bring business and finance together with the creative and non-profit worlds by focusing on Business and Community Development in her role as Assistant Branch Manager at a regional bank. To that end, she serves on several boards and committees, including Moorestown Improvement Association, Moorestown Business Association, and one of her bank’s Corporate Philanthropy committees. Additionally, she recently co-chaired her fifth major annual fundraiser for the regional chapter of a national youth mentoring organization. Hala is particularly interested in Social Media and its impact on fundraising, marketing, and donor communication in the non-profit world.
