Neill Goslin has served as Self-Help’s Director of Development since 2007 and has been with the organization since 2006. Prior to joining Self-Help, Neill worked in a variety of applied community organizing and economic development projects in New Orleans focusing on wealth building, financial education, and affordable housing. While his role at Self-Help has evolved over time, he focuses most of his energy on raising grants to support Self-Help’s mission of economic justice for all and the organization’s continued growth.
Along with the small but mighty team he leads, this work entails drawing and deepening connections between external investors and those leading the various lending and service-based programs at Self-Help. Additionally, Neill heads up Self-Help’s annual Community Development Banking Seminar, organizes other peer convenings designed to advance community development finance, and frequently assists allied non-profits in need of development support. Neill is the current Board Chair of the Marian Cheek Jackson Center and a long-standing director of the Strachan Family Foundation, which supports health and education projects in Central America—the home base of his mother’s family.
