One of the most meaningful ways in which donors can personally impact the fight against poverty is to ply their talents on behalf of Robin Hood grantees. Our board placement program connects individuals who are interested in dedicating their time and skills to the boards of organizations we fund. We work closely with these organizations to assess and prioritize their board needs and develop initiatives to strengthen their performances. To date, we have placed over 500 board members at top poverty-fighting organizations.

I feel like it’s a more meaningful example for my kids when I’m engaged personally and directly like this.”
