David Lee


David is driven to build a community that grows more just, equitable, and open to opportunity, which can best foster others who are living within the uniquely multi-cultural experiment that is the United States.

Born in South Korea, David immigrated with his family to New Jersey in 1992, while his father earned an M.Div at New Brunswick Theological Seminary. Growing up in New Jersey, his home was located between a RCA Church and the city’s largest Jewish Temple. Graduating from Hope College in 2008, David went on to earn a Master’s of Music from Northern Illinois University (Dekalb, IL) before returning to live and work in Holland at Community Action House for nearly seven years.

David joined the LIA family in summer of 2021. He brings deep experiences in volunteer management, fundraising, marketing, project management, data analysis, and a life-long learner’s curiosity to best support the funding and community-building efforts of LIA. In his previous lives, he has served as a youth orchestra conductor, Lilly Scholar, violist, chamber musician.
