Emily Piekut

Director of Donor Relations

Emily graduated from the College of Charleston in 2013 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Communication, as well as a certificate of completion from the Honors College. She began working for Fight CRC the week after graduation as a Program Coordinator, and went on to serve as the Advocacy Manager until 2017.

After briefly leaving Fight CRC to focus on her growing family, Emily joined our team in 2019 as the Senior Communications Manager, leading our efforts to amplify the Fight CRC voice and ensure the success of our outreach initiatives. In 2023, she moved into a new role as the Director of Donor Relations, where she is committed to managing new donor relationships and stewarding existing ones. After spending more than 10 years with Fight CRC, she knows the ins and outs of the organization and how to make every dollar have an impact.

Emily currently resides in Buckeye, AZ with her husband, David; their sons, Luke and Jack; and their “double doodle” (labradoodle x goldendoodle), Honey.
