Margaret A. Dillard
As an undergraduate at Duke University, Margaret created a self-designed major, “Social Justice and Civic Engagement: Focus on Children.” She was very involved in the Duke-Durham Neighborhood Partnership, Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Triangle and the Durham Giving Project. As a Fellow, Margaret focused specifically on children’s issues across her four rotations. Her capstone project was the development and implementation of a school-site vaccination program against cervical cancer in two counties in the Carolinas. After her time at the Endowment, Margaret worked in fundraising capacities for organizations such as Patton McDowell & Associates, Atlanta Girls’ School, and at Duke University (supporting both undergraduate education and the medical school). After two years with Cisco Systems, she now works for Beautycounter, a toxin-free skincare company.
