Erica Cheung



Skills-based volunteering is an outlet for corporate employees to utilize their expertise and channel it into an often overworked and under- resourced sector. In doing so, corporations are able to support the most marginalized communities that fall through the cracks of a broken system.

As an Associate Consultant, Erica supports Common Impact’s mission of building stronger local communities by facilitating relationships between nonprofits and corporations through skills-based volunteerism.

Previously, Erica worked at Cause Strategy Partners as a Program Associate serving on the BoardLead team. Through BoardLead, Erica supported nonprofits across the nation in board development while training corporate clients in nonprofit board service. Her time at Cause Strategy Partners demonstrated the power of business for good and drove her passion to channel more resources into the nonprofit sector.

Prior to Cause Strategy Partners, Erica was a recipient of a Fulbright Scholarship to South Korea where she served as an English teacher at Mireu Elementary School located in South Korea’s newest governing province, Sejong City. In Korea, Erica rediscovered her interest in public service and desire to work for the greater good.

Erica attended Binghamton University where she earned a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with concentrations in Marketing and Supply Chain, and a minor in Korean Studies. Her small growing animal family consists of her gecko Mushu and pandemic puppy Duckie. During her free time, you can find Erica working on her most recent crochet project, watching Korean dramas or variety TV shows, or baking up something in the kitchen.
