Haifa Baptiste
Deputy Co-Director, NLC Orlando Finance Co-Chair

Haifa has a passion for nonprofit work and social justice. She was a part of the 2020 cohort of the New Leader’s Council. Haifa is the Assistant Director at the Nonprofit Spot, where she helps nonprofit organizations with projects like fundraising, strategic planning and more. Haifa is passionate about many causes, including mental health, poverty, and work that impacts women and children. In her free time, she enjoys volunteering and looking for ways to get involved with her community. Haifa joined the board of NLC Orlando because she believes in NLC’s mission to train and support future progressive leaders and she wants to help recreate the same great experience for future fellows as she had when she went through the program. When she’s not working or volunteering, she enjoys writing, reading, and spending time with her Chihuahua.
