The Clark Fund Advisory Board promotes a culture of giving at Clark to all constituents, helping to ensure that the University’s critical and strategic philanthropic goals are met. Members provide feedback on messaging, strategy, and fundraising efforts, assist in peer-to-peer solicitations, offer professional expertise, and act as champions for The Clark Fund.

The board, launched in 2021, consists of 8 to 12 members, including alumni, parents or family members, and friends of Clark. Members serve a three-year term and meet regularly on campus and virtually.

Robin CohenRobin E. Cohen ’06, MPA ’07

Robin Cohen has dedicated her career to raising funds and friends in support of Boston’s young people, working and volunteering with various nonprofit organizations. She currently is the director of development and school partnerships at Fenway High School, a pilot school in Boston’s Mission Hill. Outside of her work at Fenway, Cohen serves on the Board of Directors of Jewish Big Brothers Big Sisters and as a board observer at Company One Theater Company.

Cohen was a very active Clark student and continues to believe strongly in the full Clark experience. She has been a member of the Alumni Council and a class agent since graduation. Cohen loves to cheer on the Clark men’s basketball team, for which she was the team manager as a student, whenever they are in Boston, and always tries to bring snacks for their bus rides home. Cohen was honored to receive the Young Alumni Award at her 10th reunion in 2016. When she’s not volunteering or cheering on the Cougars, Cohen, a native New Jerseyan who has lived in Boston since graduation, enjoys reading, walking in Boston, and going out to dinner with friends.
