What is the biggest trend in the field of family philanthropy?

Foundations and the philanthropic sector overall have made big leaps to address racial equity, diversity and inclusivity in their grant making practice and their own institutional reviews. There is still much to be done on this front, but I’m thrilled to see an examination of racial, gender, and social equity become a real focus of the field.

What did you do before NCFP?

Before NCFP I was the Community Investment Fellow at the Greater Washington Community Foundation and assisted with the grant making process for the Fund for Children, Youth and Families, the Community Foundation’s largest discretionary fund focused on academic success, foster care and adoption, and stable housing for the region’s youth and families. I received my Master of Public Policy with a focus in nonprofit management from the University of Maryland in 2017.

What do you like most about your job?

As the Program Coordinator I most enjoy watching our webinars come together – after connecting with speakers, managing logistics, helping with slides – it’s really exciting to see the final product come to fruition and hear the depth of perspectives from all of our panelists.
