Jo Lum is a donor, inaugural Giving Project participant, previous Board member, and general fanboy for Headwaters Foundation. Jo is thrilled to join the dream team at Headwaters where they can dig deeply into the work of radically redistributing wealth to historically under resourced communities and generally funding the revolution! Jo holds a Bachelor of Arts in education studies from Eugene Lang College: The New School for Liberal Arts and an Associate of Applied Science in American Sign Language interpreting from Saint Paul Community and Technical College.  Jo is the founder of the non-profit Friend of Camp Little Notch, an organization that owns and operates a majestic camp property in the southern Adirondacks. Previously, Jo worked as a Gift Officer at Beacon Interfaith Housing Collaborative, providing relational attention and gratitude to donors at all giving levels. Previously, Jo worked as Development Director at ASLBlend, and served as board chair for 20% Theatre Company, two Headwaters Foundation grantees. Jo is conversationally fluent in American Sign Language, and leads 20%'s ASL Access Committee. For fun, Jo co-hosts Queering Little Women, a podcast about Jo March, a transman trying to make it as a writer in Concord, Massachusetts in the 1860s. Jo is a New Yorker, living in Minneapolis, who enthusiastically and unapologetically roots for the Cubs.
