Tameka Porte

Director, Corporate & Foundation Giving


For over a decade, Tameka Porte has dedicated her professional and personal life to charitable causes.

This vivacious New Yorker first became involved with social change while attending SUNY at Buffalo, working as an assistant at the Baldy Center for Law and Social Policy. Her work at Baldy led to an exciting internship promoting cultural exchange in India for the Ryan International School. In following years, her professional career has spanned both the private and non-profit sectors - most notably at Deutsche Bank and Robin Hood Foundation. In 2011, she launched The Prom Dream Team, an initiative geared towards
covering the costs associated with attending prom for talented New York City students graduating from high school and entering college. In 2016, Tameka expanded her fundraising knowledge by obtaining a Masters of Science in Fundraising Management from Columbia University.
