Promotions and New Hires at FJC

We are happy to introduce the FJC community to the new faces and new roles that will bolster our team as we respond to the urgent needs of the nonprofit community.

Tim Nicol has been promoted to Senior Manager, Finance & Investments.  Tim joined FJC in 2015 and has become an integral part of our finance team, overseeing a breadth of FJC’s financial operations and stewarding relationships with multiple financial institution partners.  Please join us in congratulating Tim as he grows into a broader management role. 

Karina Xelo has been promoted to Grants Administrator.  Karina started with FJC in 2019, as Administrative Coordinator, and she was known for years as “the voice of FJC” for donors and partners calling our office.  We are thrilled that as Grants Administrator, Karina has stepped into an even more critical donor-facing role, coordinating the Board-approval of weekly grant recommendations and troubleshooting grant disbursements.

Please also welcome two new staff to FJC:

Rachel Goldman, Program Assistant for the Fiscal Sponsorship Program, joined FJC soon after graduating with a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology with a minor in History from Clark University, where she studied health systems and the challenges of implementing effective programs in underserved communities, including mental health. Rachel is passionate about writing, and her published work has covered topics as varied as long form essays, playwriting and analyses of popular culture. 

Jasmina Uka, Administrative Coordinator, earned a BA in Political Science and minor in Legal studies with a Manga Sum Laude distinction at the City College of New York. Throughout her time in college, Jasmina has been active in various voluntary clubs and programs, serving on the Alumni Board of the S Jay Levy Fellowship, which supports students with strong academic performance records and pronounced career aspirations. Jasmina has seen firsthand the impact of non-profit organizations and looks forward to accelerating her non-profit career at FJC.
