Staff Spotlight: Our Work in Action

PUBLISHED: Jul 12, 2023

At Tipping Point, our team believes in the power of connection. When we bring our skills, experiences, and passion to work, we can advance the most promising poverty-fighting solutions. This month, we asked Emma, Erin, and Lara where they see their work in action.


Emma Lundberg, Institutional Giving Manager, works with our corporate and foundation donors to support Tipping Point’s vision for impact. She sees her work in action when she’s connecting donors to the parts of Tipping Point’s work that’s the most meaningful to them, sparking curiosity and the desire to further their impact.

Emma lives in San Francisco, and her favorite spot in the City is Golden Gate Park’s Hellman Hollow on a sunny day.




Erin Kaneshiro, Office Coordinator, is the team’s point of contact for office operations and communications, helping set her colleagues up for success by making sure our office space has everything we need to work efficiently. Erin sees her work in action when our team utilizes the office as a space for collaboration, productivity, and community-building.

Erin lives in San Francisco, and enjoys exploring the windmills and the tulip gardens in Golden Gate Park.





Lara Tannenbaum, Senior Program Officer, Housing, supports housing programs throughout the Bay Area and Tipping Point’s Youth Homelessness project. Lara sees her work in action when she meets with community members, planning and implementing new solutions to support Bay Area youth experiencing homelessness.

Lara lives in Oakland, and loves to spend the weekend relaxing in sunny Dover Park.
