Elizabeth Sullivan brings deep knowledge on national trends, strategy, and best practices in private philanthropy and corporate giving. In March 2015, Liz joined the National Center for Family Philanthropy as Program Manager to launch the two-year Family Philanthropy Through Community Foundations initiative, designed to enhance the effectiveness of families working with community foundations as their giving partners. From 2006 to 2013, Liz worked at the Council on Foundations, a nonprofit membership association of grantmaking foundations and corporations. Most recently, Liz was Managing Director of Corporate, Independent, and Family Philanthropy where she stewarded a portfolio of ~850 members and led a change management process to integrate and unify member products and programs aimed to strengthen organizations and leaders in philanthropy. During her tenure at the Council, Liz led signature projects including the Disaster Philanthropy Network; a Corporate Philanthropy Initiative that resulted in the seminal guide, Increasing Impact, Enhancing Value: A Practitioner’s Guide to Leading Corporate Philanthropy; and “Philanthropy Solutions: Promising Practice in Corporate Giving,” a set of peer-learning activities that facilitates knowledge sharing among corporate philanthropy leaders.
