Dani Roessler
Development Associate

Dani started volunteering with GRM in early 2020 and assumed the full-time position of Director of Development in early 2021. As the Director of Development, she manages GRM's grants, organizes fundraising campaigns, and conducts donor stewardship.

From 2013 to 2018, Dani served as an active-duty Army officer in the 82nd Airborne Division, participating in overseas operations in Zaragoza, Spain, and Mosul, Iraq. From 2018 to 2022, she continued her military service as a Public Affairs Officer in the Army National Guard.

In 2019, Dani earned her Master of Public Administration with a focus on nonprofit resource development, NGOs and international development, and nonprofit law and governance. While in graduate school, she was selected for and completed a U.S. Congressional Senior Internship in Washington, D.C.

Dani is proud to be a part of the GRM team, and honored to contribute to such important, life-saving work. In her free time, she enjoys hiking and camping with her family, cooking, and solving mysteries (AKA - listening to true crime podcasts).


We are in Gaza and Ukraine.

Yesterday, GRM founder Pete Reed and was killed in Bakhmut, Ukraine.

Yesterday, GRM founder Pete Reed was killed in Bakhmut, Ukraine. Pete was the bedrock of GRM, serving as Board President for 4 years. In January, Pete stepped away from GRM to work with Global Outreach Doctors on their Ukraine mission and was killed while rendering aid.

This is a stark reminder of the perils rescue and aid workers face in conflict zones as they serve citizens caught in the crossfire. Pete was just 33 years old, but lived a life in service of others, first as a decorated US Marine and then in humanitarian aid. GRM will strive to honor his legacy and the selfless service he practiced.

We fully support Pete’s family, friends, and colleagues during this devastating time.
