Suzanna Schell

Suzanna oversees all fundraising for UFE. She has over 16 years experience in all aspects of fundraising, from individuals to foundations for the arts, the environment, and progressive education including the New England aquarium, Boston Natural Areas Network, Somerville Arts Council, and Cambridge Friends School. Originally from the Philadelphia area, Suzanna has a BFA (Bachelor of Fine Arts) from the University of Pennsylvania in conjunction with the Fine Arts Academy of Pennsylvania. She is also recipient of a scholarship in visual arts at Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown.

Suzanna began her work in fundraising to organize an artist community from Fort Point Channel in Boston in the early 80s. She has a strong interest in community housing and was co-founder of an artists housing and workshop cooperative, and more recently, a co-housing community north of Cambridge.

She loves long distance skiing and New England winters, and thinks you can never have too much snow. In the last three years Suzanna has been learning to play the accordion and dreams of performaing with a band at Honk festival in Somerville, MA.
