Interim Chief of Philanthropy
Why do you do what you do? What drew you to the foundation?
I’ve spent 25 years in the philanthropic arena generating support for key community initiatives, consulting nonprofit organizations, and providing organizational leadership. I believe philanthropy is a powerful tool for creating positive social change. When the foundation helps people give and invest in ways that are impactful, wise, and generous, I believe the world is a better place.
How would you describe your role?
I guide and support individuals, families, companies, and private foundations who wish to set up philanthropic funds with us. I serve as the point of contact for professional advisors such as attorneys, accountants, financial planners, investment advisors, and wealth managers who are looking for resources and expertise for their clients.
