Rachel Weidinger
Senior Manager, Marketing & Communications, TechSoup Global


Rachel Weidinger is a hope shelterer who lives in San Francisco. These days, she’s happy to be a Senior Consultant and Marketing Director for the brilliant team of web strategy consultants helping nonprofits save the world at Common Knowledge, as well as a partner at Stowe Boyd’s /Ground project. She has provided marketing and strategy to orgs delivering computer training to Latina immigrant women and cargo-carrying bikes to Africa, helped stabilize a nonprofit for tech-loving teachers, created innovative landfill diversion and public art programs, developed audiences and revenues for contemporary art and food museums, and along the way happened to accomplish a giant pile of market research.

When not geeking out on how to save the world with technology, you can usually find Rachel in the kitchen making marmalade or pies. Her bookshelf has been sorted by color since 1999 and she reads voraciously, no matter what hue the spine is.

We'll promote the best ones, and publish ideas and to-do requests for all. Read more.
