Charissa Laisy

Director of Digital Engagement


Charissa is a digital strategist with a passion for building people power online. She comes to Common Future having worked with nonprofits, political campaigns, and community-based organizations to hone their digital acumen and lead audiences to take action — whether that be donating, volunteering, or making a good old-fashioned call to a legislator. A skilled digital fundraiser with a proven track record of building fundraising capacity through grassroots donations, Charissa has seen time and time again what can happen when communities get organized and fight for what’s right. Her belief that another world is possible brought her to Common Future where she is inspired by the fight to create a more equitable economy.

Charissa is a proud Midwesterner living in Iowa with her spouse. Don’t get her started talking about her pit bull, Juniper – she’ll never stop.
