On behalf of the Board of Directors of United Philanthropy Forum, I want to express my deep gratitude to Dave for his leadership, vision, and commitment to building an equitable and inclusive organization over the last 7+ years. We are grateful for his thoughtfulness and care during this transition and so glad we have many months to properly honor all he has done for the field of philanthropy.
On a personal note, Dave was one of the first people I met when I started in the PSO space, and he was warm, and welcoming, and helped me become a better leader. My time on the board and as Chair has been filled with ups and downs personally and professionally; Dave has always been there to listen, laugh, and share in pain and joy.
The board will work with Dave on a transition plan and regularly communicate with the network and our partners about the search for the next CEO.
In the meantime, please feel free to reach out to me with any questions, thoughts, or concerns.
United Philanthropy Forum Board Chair
