Erin McDonald is a professional artist, entrepreneur, and philanthropist. Known for her abstract art, Erin travels extensively and is a fine art collector. She is a wholehearted supporter and advocate for women’s rights. She dedicates her time to raising two daughters, their family business, and her volunteer philanthropic work. She and her husband own and operate three concrete businesses in Arizona.
Erin has a long history of philanthropic work because she is a firm believer in improving the human condition not just in the U.S. but globally. Her father was a founding member in the 1970’s of Esperanca, a medical non-profit organization that began in the Amazon of Brazil and now continues in many different countries such as Bolivia, Nicaragua, Peru, and Mozambique. Esperanca’s mission is to improve the lives of people who needed medical care in remote areas. Teams of doctors and dentists travel to villages in the referenced countries to provide medical care to the residents with the hope of improving their quality of lives.
In the past, Erin has been a strong supporter of several charities in her community such as Sojourner Center, a non-profit organization that provides shelter and support services to victims of domestic abuse and human trafficking; and to Gabriel’s Angels, the first non-profit organization in Arizona that provides healing pet therapy for abused, neglected and at-risk children. She and her daughters are currently active members and supporters of the Assistance League of Newport Mesa, a non-profit organization that provides clothing, school supplies, and dental services in Orange County, California.
