Melody Rooshen is a Program Manager for Community Investments and Partnerships (CIP) team at EBCF. She is interested in advancing social change by bridging her two worlds of tech and non-profit together to center and uplift BIPOC communities.

Currently, in her role, she strategically focuses on identifying the needs and gaps in our grantmaking by building authentic relationships with our community thought partners. Her role intersects arts and culture for racial and social justice and supports our corporate partnership’s grantmaking.

Melody received her bachelor’s degree in history from the University of California, Riverside. Her personal interests include ambitiously binge-watching Netflix, getting that 12-step skincare regimen down to a tee, and drinking chai with her loved ones. Melody lives in the East Bay with her partner and toddler.
