Torey Greenwald, RecognitionArt

Torey is a Principal at RecognitionArt. Growing up in the fundraising community with her parents having served on many nonprofit boards, Torey developed a passion for the industry at a young age. As the spokesperson for the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile and traveling the country, she witnessed the full extent a visual connection can have emotionally on a person. This understanding has been a driving force behind what she and her colleagues create at RecognitionArt for each individual client. “We don't ‘copy/cut/paste’ designs and slap an organization's name at the top; we dive deep and learn the ins and outs of what makes a nonprofit special and the ripples of positivity it makes through its work.” With a background in the arts and communication, Torey gets excited with each and every opportunity that arises knowing that she has the privilege to aid their clients' successes in financial growth to continue their mission.
