Interim Chief Executive Officer, Alluma
Rey Faustino, interim CEO at Alluma and founder of One Degree, is committed to ensuring that everyone has access to the vital, life-saving resources they need to achieve social and economic mobility. Faustino launched One Degree, a technology-driven nonprofit organization, that enables families to easily navigate the complex web of nonprofit and social services from the technology in the palms of their hands. Under Faustino’s leadership, One Degree grew from serving a few neighborhoods in San Francisco to serving over a million community members in cities nationwide. In September 2020, One Degree merged with Alluma, a nonprofit organization that provides integrated eligibility and enrollment solutions to states and county agencies to enable people to easily connect to public benefits. Alluma and One Degree are creating a streamlined end-to-end platform that enables people to access and directly enroll in services and benefits to achieve social and economic mobility. Faustino began his career as a teacher and later was the site director at BUILD, a college-access nonprofit organization that propels low-income youth of color to attain a college education. He is an alumnus of Y Combinator, a New America CA Fellow, an Echoing Green Fellow, and an Education Pioneers Fellow.
