Sylvia Moskovitz

Sylvia is the Director of Development and Communications for Farm Sanctuary, where she is creating and implementing an innovative philanthropic development program to support and further Farm Sanctuary’s mission as well as leading marketing and communications initiatives that support Farm Sanctuary’s strategic goals.

Over the course of her 20-plus years in the nonprofit world, Sylvia has worked in organizational management, marketing, and communications as well as all aspects of development. Her career has included positions at Vista Del Mar Child and Family Services; the Jewish Federations of Greater Los Angeles and Greater Dallas; and other community organizations, religious institutions, and international agencies. From 2010 to 2012, she was the national major and planned gifts officer for the West Division of JDRF (formerly the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation). Prior to assuming her role at Farm Sanctuary, she served as director of development for the University of Southern California Shoah Foundation.
Additionally, Sylvia has been involved with two companion animal nonprofits: K9 Connection, which pairs shelter animals with youth in foster care in order to train the dogs, so they are more “adoptable”; and CageFree K-9 Rescue Foundation, which rescues, fosters, and places injured and difficult-to-place dogs.

Sylvia credits her success in part to her multidisciplinary education, which includes a B.A. from the University of Southern California in social welfare, with an emphasis on community organizations, and a J.D. from Whittier Law School, where she was research editor of the Whittier Law Review.

Sylvia has two children: Joshua, a math teacher for the Los Angeles Unified School District and on-set teacher in the entertainment industry, and Jessica, who does project development and international sales for a movie production company in Beverly Hills, CA. Sylvia spends a great deal of her free time with her granddaughters, Olivia and Addison, and grandpuppies, Frank and Beastie. Her hobbies include knitting and jewelry making. She loves to hike and spend time at the beach.
