Colin Richardson

Director, Grants Administration
Why do you do what you do? What drew you to the foundation?

Living about a mile and a half from our office, it could be the work the San Francisco Foundation does to support the community I’m rooted in.

Or it may be my passion for streamlining the processes around grantmaking to try to make efficient use of funds in a way that engages beneficiaries in the decision-making process.

But really, the main thing that drew me to the foundation was the 30-minute walking commute.

How would you describe your role?

I manage a team that ensures all grants we make are in compliance with IRS regulations.

Are you involved in any volunteer activities?

I’m a volunteer docent for San Francisco Heritage. I give guided tours of the Haas-Lilienthal House twice a month.
