Join us on January 16 for Bunker Connect made possible by the Schultz Family Foundation.

We will hear insights from Albie Masland about the power of building community.

If you know Albie, you know his energy and passion are contagious. If you don’t know Albie, you are in for a treat!

Albie Masland is the Director of Growth and Partnership Development for the Travis Manion Foundation. Albie first came into contact with Travis Manion Foundation in 2012 when he ran 3025 miles across the country in support of the “If Not Me, Then Who…” movement. The experience left Albie with an incredible passion for the TMF Mission, and the people it serves. Upon completing his effort Albie joined the TMF team in the new San Diego office. Over the past 6 years, he has worked in all aspects of TMF programs, operations, and fundraising. In 2017 Albie, his wife Jen, and their Great Dane, Penny Lane moved to Raleigh, NC to begin building the TMF brand in the greater Southeast. Currently, Albie works with TMF regional program teams, development, and strategic partnerships, ensuring our mission and growth expand and deepen impact on a national scale. Albie is a graduate of Dickinson College with a major in Political Science.
