Nisha Baxi's Red Cross story began during her freshman year of high school when she saw a Red Cross club flyer posted in the hallway and decided to attend a meeting.
“As a high schooler, I thought maybe I would end up in medicine, as my mother is an RN, but I realized there are multiple ways you can help people besides becoming a doctor or a nurse.”
Nisha’s motivation to help people is infectious. Over the years, she has inspired countless members of her family and extended community to serve as volunteers and make generous gifts. Naturally, she even recruited her husband, Neel, to volunteer and serve on the Silicon Valley Chapter Board. Nisha has provided invaluable leadership over the last 20 years. In honor of her service, the Silicon Valley Chapter named their annual youth volunteer award after her.
After attending the 2019 Tiffany Circle Summit in Washington, D.C., Nisha was excited to join the Tiffany Circle, a group of philanthropists committed to advancing the Red Cross mission.
“To see all these amazing women work together to make the Red Cross what it is today is a wonderful thing.”
