Sorg Joins TBOR as Director of Development
Victoria Sorg will serve as the first Director of Development for Take Back Our Republic (TBOR), the non-profit educating the public on conservative solutions for political reform. The non-partisan organization advocates to ensure power and influence is returned to “We The People” instead of outside special interests groups.
“Victoria’s combination of experience as a financial advisor guiding Christian-based investment at Thrivent (https://www.thrivent.com/), her passion for Philanthropy developed during a trip to El Salvador building homes with Habitat for Humanity, as well as her history of both awarding grants and closing 7-figure grants while at the Springfield Foundation made her an ideal fit,” said TBOR Executive Director John Pudner.
“Our entire team was thoroughly impressed by Victoria’s preparation during the interview process,” said TBOR President and Board Chair Francis Johnson. “She incorporated extra ideas such as how her work as a professional photographer and ways that videos and pictures could help tell TBOR’s story. In addition, she was quite knowledgeable about what groups of donors were most likely to contribute in order to advance TBOR’s mission. In short, we felt Victoria had already started to do the job between interviews, and even though among 89 applicants for the position we had several outstanding candidates from all regions of the country, she was the clear choice.”
Sorg completed a Master’s degree in Philanthropy and Nonprofit Development at the University of Northern Iowa, and her undergrad in Financial Economics from Wittenberg University. She will be the second TBOR member based in Ohio, while multiple team members are also based in Provo, Utah, and company headquarters in Auburn, Alabama.
“I had no intention of leaving my current position as Development and Marketing Director, but was convinced to inquire out of curiosity,” said Sorg, who is also a member of Rotary International. “When the system indicated this organization and position was a strong match for my skills, I replied, and grew more and more interested in TBOR’s crucial mission until I decided this was a once in a lifetime opportunity and accepted the offer.”
