Jeffrey Kampelman is a semi-retired lawyer based in Washington, D.C. He provides guidance and financial advice (on a pro bono basis) to small, not- for-profit organizations.

Jeff has worked on the staff of several political campaigns, including for the General Counsel of the Carter/Mondale Re-Election Committee. Later, he co-designed a public policy forum (referred to as “The National Issues Convention”), after which he and a former CBS News producer worked on political programming proposals. Jeff was an election observer in North Dakota, Florida, Mississippi, and Pennsylvania. He served as a founding board member of The Governance Institute and of the Jenny McKean Moore Fund for Writers, where he has been Vice President and Treasurer for 45 years. Jeff is a graduate of Yale College and Yale Law School.
