Sandy Staffeld

Vice President of Resource Development

about:

(713) 574-7535

Joined MAM in 2010

 

Raised in a small town of 200, Sandy learned the true value of ‘neighbors helping neighbors’ at an early age. It is no surprise she began a career with the non-profit sector.

 

Sandy is inspired by helping donors find a charitable investment that matches what is near and dear to their heart. She has raised funds for special needs and neglected children, long-term care for the elderly, community healthcare and family services. Today, Sandy and her team are focused upon creating donor relationships that will enrich the quality of life for struggling families throughout Houston.

 

Fun Fact: Natives of Upper Peninsula of Michigan are referred to as “Yoopers." Ask Sandy to show you where she grew up and she will create the State of Michigan with her hands!

Joined MAM in 2019

 

After practicing business law in Houston since 1977, and running his own firm for 25 years, Bill retired in September 2019 and came to MAM to increase his volunteer hours, where he had served as a job coach for five years. When asked if he had any previous nonprofit experience, Bill replied, “Well, some, yes, but not on purpose.”

 

Bill’s volunteer hours instilled in him a deep admiration for MAM’s people and programs. He likes to tell friends that his Encore Career “beats lawyerin’ by a country mile.”


Fun Fact: Bill is a proud dad to 4 wonderful adult kids, all in Houston, and an even prouder grandpa to 9 grandchildren, whom he spoils shamelessly.
