Our People

Our experienced staff and Steering Committee, from all regions and backgrounds, bring breadth and depth to the AFN table. They serve as stewards of our work, ensuring focus and effectiveness.

“As a family foundation, our trustees—who do all our grant making directly—need well researched information for a wide but increasingly inter-related set of issues. Not only does AFN give us the best information, but the grantees funded through AFN members are doing cutting edge, frontline work. AFN members and staff are leading thoughtful, provocative conversations about the key issues impacting philanthropy today. Join—you won’t regret it.”
