Cari Hourigan

Finance & Operations Manager

Cari is the Finance and Operations Manager at 1,000 Days. In this role, she is responsible for supporting and coordinating day-to-day operations including finance and accounting, grants management, and HR. Cari joins 1,000 Days with five years of non-profit operations management experience. While most in the not-for-profit world find finance and operations to be the unglamourous drudge work, Cari is passionate about building strong operational infrastructures that let the mission thrive.

Prior to pursuing a career in non-profit management, Cari served as an urban planner for a small city in New York’s Capital District where she developed a fascination for creating change. It was in this role that she learned that regardless of how strong a law or policy is, lasting societal change can only be created through the positive actions and attitudes of individuals collectively.

Cari holds an MSc in Development Studies from the University of Glasgow and a BA in International Studies from Manhattan College.
