Erin B. Moore joins News Literacy Project as Senior Vice President of Development

WASHINGTON, D.C., June 17, 2024 — After a nationwide search, the News Literacy Project welcomes Erin B. Moore as the organization’s new Senior Vice President of Development.

She succeeds Claudia Borgelt, who now serves as Senior Vice President of Strategy and Impact for the growing nonpartisan nonprofit. Moore begins July 1.

Moore has a track record in leading fundraising efforts to support organizational growth. She previously served as chief development officer at myAgro, an international, award-winning nonprofit dedicated to supporting smallholder farmers in developing countries. Moore led a global team responsible for securing the organization’s $35 million annual budget through a mix of government grants, foundation grants and major individual gifts.

Moore brings a deep commitment to relationship-building, active listening and storytelling to help NLP secure its ambitious mission of ensuring that every high school student in the United States learns news literacy skills before graduating.

“With social media and continued advancements with AI, misleading and false information is spreading more rapidly than ever, posing an urgent threat to our democracy. NLP’s programs offer a critical solution by equipping youth with the skills to discern fact from fiction,” Moore said. “I am thrilled to be part of this essential work and look forward to securing funding for NLP’s continued growth.”

Before entering the nonprofit sector, Moore worked for more than a decade in business marketing, communications and chief of staff roles in public and private companies and in higher education.

“The News Literacy Project envisions a future where all students in the United States are taught the skills necessary to participate in civic society as well-informed, critical thinkers. Erin’s comprehensive background and demonstrated ability to secure large-scale funding makes her the perfect person to guide NLP’s fundraising and help us continue our expansion into classrooms across the country,” said NLP President and CEO Charles Salter.
