Christopher Kauffman

Technology and Data Operations Manager

Growing up in a town where my uncles ran the local newspaper, I was acutely aware of the importance of journalism for a community. After I finished grad school, I moved to D.C. and started as an intern at ICFJ. That quickly turned into a full-time position on the development team. As I grew and the organization changed, I found my footing as ICFJ’s go-to tech person—finding digital solutions for organization-wide problems.

In my current position, I’m able to focus solely on the organization’s technology. I play a key role in guiding the technological direction of ICFJ and overseeing the organization’s digital security policies.

My background: My experience is a mix of nonprofit business development and technology/data operations. As a business development professional, I’ve worked alongside ICFJ’s leadership to raise the organization’s visibility through major events held across the U.S. As a technology professional, I’ve worked with corporations, universities and nonprofit organizations to optimize their digital tools – most notably Salesforce, FormAssembly and Airtable.

I have a master’s in international relations from the University of San Diego and a bachelor’s in political science from the University of Redlands. I also hold two Salesforce certifications – NPSP Salesforce Consultant and Salesforce Administrator.
