With SELC since 2009
Jennis created and runs SELC’s Next30 Initiative, a committee of next-generation philanthropists committed to SELC’s mission. Born out of a desire to expand SELC’s network of friends and supporters, Next30 launched in 2016 and has been a great success. Next30 Ambassadors have become key supporters. Jennis also focuses on leadership and major gift fundraising and growing SELC’s network of supporters in the Southeast and beyond. She and her team organize SELC’s special events regionwide.
An outdoors enthusiast, Jennis appreciates the natural beauty of the Southeast and is proud to be part of an organization that fights to protect this special place. Jennis was born in Alabama, and still appreciates the state’s many natural treasures — its beautiful coast, mountains, forests, and rivers.
