Iris Sagi is the Development Director overseeing fund development, grants management and corporate partnerships for There With Care of the Bay Area. In addition, she supports the Volunteer, Marketing and Operations teams throughout the year.
After working with the UN as the Liaison Officer for the Peacekeeping Mission in her hometown in Bosnia and Herzegovina, and witnessing first-hand the horrific effects of the Bosnian civil war on families and young children, she decided to make charitable work with a social impact her life’s focus.
Shortly after Iris came to the US in 1995, her mom passed away from cancer. Her experience caring for her was a key factor in wanting to leverage her life and professional experiences in making an impact at There With Care.
She now lives in Los Gatos with her husband, two children and two cats, speaks 3 languages (Bosnian, Hebrew and English), loves exploring majestic hiking trails in Los Gatos and Santa Cruz Mountains, and would love to finally learn Italian!
