Chloe Manke

Board Secretary

Occupation: Sponsor Relations Lead, Bend Chamber of Commerce

Chloe migrated westward in 2015 from the Appalachian Mountains of North Carolina, where she grew up. After traveling around the U.S. raising money for a charity, Chloe finished her degree in Sustainable Development at Appalachian State University, where she launched an environmental education program that focused on establishing Learning Gardens at K-8 schools.

Her passion for working with kids led her to serve in a classroom in Portland, OR before moving to Bend in 2019. Over the last decade, she has worked with several non-profits fundraising, event planning, grant writing, or MCing events. After working with Boys & Girls Clubs of Bend in 2021, she fell in love with the organization and ultimately joined the board to help support and further their mission to provide opportunities for youth, so they are able to reach their full potential.

When she’s not working or volunteering you can find her writing comedy, binging podcasts, biking, snowboarding, or hiking with her partner and pup.
