My Story

Sarah Domena’s passion for strengthening the community has led her to her current role as the Director of Communications and Marketing for the Jewish Foundation of Greater New Haven. Here, she concentrates on strategic and grassroots marketing, community engagement, and fostering philanthropy with various donors and community organizations to accomplish charitable objectives and enhance community support. Sarah holds a BS in Marketing and Communications from Southern Connecticut State University and an MBA from Albertus Magnus College, both in New Haven.

Her previous roles have been in development, community outreach, and fundraising for local non-profits, as well as Marketing and Customer Relations in the corporate sector. She is a member of the Steering Committee for the Non-Profits Resource Council of the Greater New Haven Chamber of Commerce.

Sarah is a graduate of the Milford Chapter of PLTI (Parent/Teacher Leadership Institute). Career accomplishments include being an essential member of a Medical Technologies Start-up product launch team; launching the Volunteer and Leadership Council; raising substantial donations in matching corporate gifts; and implementing peer-to-peer fundraising campaigns resulting in a 265% increase in donations.

Sarah is honored to join the IVCG Board of Directors, as it aligns perfectly with her passion for supporting the community, particularly focusing on the often-overlooked aging population. Her expertise in marketing, communications, and development will pave the way for greater sustainability and organizational growth.

Sarah considers her greatest achievement to be her family, where she is a proud mom of 3 wonderfully active boys; Noah, Wes, and Adam, whom she is raising with her husband, Jay, along with their dog, Cannon, and cat, Gordy. In her ‘free’ time, Sarah can be found instructing indoor cycling classes, where she has held a certificate for over 10 years, and traveling whenever the opportunity arises.


Thank you for your interest in IVCG. I look forward to connecting with those who hold a passion for our community and invite you to reach out with your story.
