Pamela David is the Executive Director of the Walter & Elise Haas Fund (www.haassr.org), one of San Francisco’s most respected private foundations. Working within four primary areas of focus (public education, economic security, the arts, and Jewish life), the Fund’s mission is to help build a healthy, just, and vibrant society in which people feel connected to and responsible for their community. Prior to coming to the Haas Sr. Fund, Pam served in local government for over 12 years, working for three mayoral administrations in the areas of community and economic development, federal policy, and welfare reform. During her tenure in the public sector, Pam spearheaded numerous innovative reforms and partnerships, many of which included philanthropy. Pam’s history includes being a community organizer and activist on a range of civil rights and equity issues. Pam also has extensive non-profit board experience, and has served as chair of the board of Northern California Grantmakers. Currently, she is co-chair of the board of the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, and on the Steering Committee of Hope SF, an ambitious public-private partnership to rebuild severely distressed public housing.
