As a co-founder of the Laughing Gull Foundation, Meg was honored to take the lead on launching the organization in 2013. In setting up LGF’s first grantmaking programs, operations, and strategies, Meg drew on fifteen years of leadership experience with innovative organizations including the Merck Family Fund, Resource Generation, Bolder Giving, The Food Project, The Farm School and Waltham Fields Community Farm. She was supported and inspired by LGF’s other board and staff members, peers in the funding world, movement leaders, and a set of amazing consultants, to whom she will be forever grateful. As LGF grows into its next chapter, Meg is thrilled to support Hez Norton as LGF’s Executive Director, and to focus on her role as Board President. In that capacity, her current work with LGF focuses on carrying out the foundation’s strategic plan, overseeing the foundation’s asset management, and organizing within the philanthropic sector. Meg holds an M.Div. from Harvard Divinity School and a B.A. from Oberlin College. She loves to experiment with gluten free baking, and to cheer on her favorite women’s sports teams of the moment (currently the LA Sparks and the NC Courage). Meg always needs a musical outlet – sometimes it’s dj’ing, right now it’s singing in a choir.
