  • Lydia Oh | Daylight Advisors

    Lydia Oh (She/Her) Manager, Programs & Marketing m Lydia’s contributions to Daylight’s program and marketing efforts stem from a deep commitment to community and care that is only growing, demonstrated at work and at home. Her leadership in philanthropy is no surprise, having most recently worked with Dien at the Center for Philanthropy and Social Impact at the American College of Financial Services, where she supported the Center in programming, research and publications, and marketing and social media. Lydia welcomed the chance to join the Center, and now Daylight, to further extend her work with donors that started out at Missio Seminary and then The UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television. Throughout all of these roles she’s come to appreciate, and draw out, the essence of giving: that it’s about so much more than the ask; it’s about connection with people; hearing their stories and supporting new ones; activating what matters to them and the change they seek. Lydia personally practices many different ways of giving and creating connection, which was one of the things she studied upon recently completing the Chartered Advisor in Philanthropy® certification (CAP®), as a member of the latest Advisors of Color cohort. She is very active in both the Korean-American community and her church, where she helped lead the women’s group, and developed efforts around well being and mental health during and after the pandemic. Similarly, Lydia is a committed friend and advocate to the families and mothers in her extended community, and she lives in the Philadelphia suburbs with her husband and two young children.
