Announcing the appointment of Jered Pruitt to Chief Operating Officer (COO) of the Chinese American Service League.

The Chinese American Service League is pleased to announce the appointment of Jered Pruitt as its new Chief Operating Officer, beginning September 1st, 2017. Under his new role as COO, he will oversee the internal operations of the entire organization, including programs, HR, finance, development and quality assurance. This will allow CASL’s future CEO to be externally focused on strategic relationships and growth.

Mr. Pruitt has served as CASL’s Director of Development and Communications for the past two and a half years, reorganizing the program to significantly elevate its fundraising capacity and dramatically increase the board’s engagement around philanthropy. Under his leadership, CASL has increased its annual giving by 200%, elevated both signature events to more than double the income and attendees, expanded its corporate engagement program, added a Major Gifts and Planned Giving program, and started an endowment.

Mr. Pruitt brings over 20 years of non-profit executive experience, including six years as a non-profit CEO, five years in clinical leadership positions and twelve years in executive fundraising. He holds a Master’s Degree from Roosevelt University in Clinical Psychology and a Bachelor’s Degree from Judson University.

“Jered’s expertise in all facets of non-profit management has been a great asset to CASL during our transition and search for new leadership. Jered has proven himself a highly qualified fundraiser in addition to a highly qualified and experienced non-profit leader.”

—Jim Mark Jr, Chairman of the Board


“I am so happy that Jered has chosen to serve CASL and our community in a larger way. His organizational and leadership skills, along with the continuity he can provide to the CASL staff, will be a great asset. I’m confident that he will excel, and we will all be the better for it.”

—Esther Wong, Executive Director and Co-Founder
