We are excited to welcome four philanthropy leaders from across the country to our Board of Directors. In June and July, Forum members voted on new and renewing directors for the Forum’s board of directors and revised Forum bylaws.
Elected to the Forum’s Board of Directors for a first three-year term are Kiran Ahuja, Philanthropy Northwest; Laurie Liles, Arizona Grantmakers Forum; Adriana Loson-Ceballos, Emerging Practitioners in Philanthropy; and Patricia Smith, The Funders Network.
Two Directors were also elected to a second three-year term on the Board: Amanda Misiko Andere, Funders Together to End Homelessness and Andreason Brown, Spencer Foundation.
In addition, the Forum’s Board of Directors has elected new Board Officers for 2020-2021: Daranee Petsod, Grantmakers Concerned with Immigrants and Refugees (Chair); Amanda Misiko Andere, Funders Together to End Homelessness (Vice Chair); Karen Freeman, Southern California Grantmakers (Treasurer); and Ret Boney, North Carolina Network of Grantmakers (Secretary).
