Neda Said


Senior Program Manager

Neda manages program infrastructure, events, and projects for dynamic NFG programs that facilitate connections and organizing amongst funders and movement leaders. Their work at NFG includes support Funders for a Just Economy and the Democratizing Development Program, as well as leading general member political education.

Neda’s experience has honed their skills in strategic community engagement, concise program management, dynamic facilitation, and thoughtful curriculum development to build momentum in the movement toward liberation.

Neda is also an organizer with Survived & Punished. They completed their studies in Political Science and International Studies at the University of California at San Diego. When Neda isn’t immersed in planning the details of something, they are probably out enjoying the sunshine.
