Devon Schad

Director of Development, JEWISHcolorado

Devon Schad is director of development for JEWISHcolorado. In his previous position as director of JEWISHcolorado’s Young Adult Department (YAD), he launched LIVE, GIVE, & LEAD Jewish. This three-tiered strategy allowed for greater ownership of programming by community leaders which has proven to be a key in millennial engagement. He has rejuvenated the young adults within the Jewish community through the creation of programs such as It’s Real |Israel and encourages continued growth of YAD’s development and programming while focusing on overall campaign success.

Devon is an active volunteer throughout the Colorado community and is currently serving as the president of BATBA Inc. (a non-profit house corporation serving fraternity members at the University of Colorado), and co-chair of the Volunteer Institute Program for Zeta Beta Tau International.

He holds a B.S. in marketing from the University of Colorado Leeds School of Business, and is an avid CU Buffs sports fan having season tickets to both football and basketball. Devon enjoys spending time outdoors with his wife Kelli, two year old daughter Eliana and their two dogs Chip (Sheltie) and Riley (English Shepherd).
