Morgan Stonefelt

Development Manager

“Solar Cookers International is a wonderful example of a group of dedicated individuals coming together to make a difference in their communities. I am proud to work for an organization that prioritizes people and the environment.”

Morgan has 7 years of experience working in non-profit development. Her experience includes working as Program Manager for the Center for Community Involvement in Stockton, California, USA as well as in development at the American Heart Association in Sacramento, California, USA. Her career focus has always been to make a positive impact and to help others.

In 2013, Morgan was awarded a grant from Walter Robb and Whole Foods to study biointensive farming in Northern California. Through her work, she learned how to grow enough calories for a family of 4 on a self-sustaining one-acre plot of land using 60% less water than traditional farming methods. In her previous role at the Heart Association, she helped secure the largest multi-year donation in Sacramento history.  She is excited to apply her experience in both sustainable food production and non-profit work to the mission of SCI to make solar cooking accessible to women, girls, and communities around the world.

Morgan double majored in International Relations and Spanish and holds her B.A. from the University of the Pacific in Stockton, California, USA. She is currently pursuing her Master’s of Public Health from San Jose State University (also in California, USA) and was recently invited to join the Phi Kappa Phi Honor Society for outstanding academic achievements. She is also an active Rotarian with the Rotary Club of Pocket/Greenhaven. Morgan is also fluent in Spanish. Outside of SCI, Morgan spends her time training for fitness competitions, backpacking, and experimenting with vegan cooking.
