Manage the grant-making and program related investments portfolio, as well as build the startup social enterprises for Planet Heritage Foundation (PHF) around its key target areas of oceans, climate change, and biodiversity conservation.
Began by helping the foundation define its mission, goals, and ‘collaborative venture philanthropy’ approach, with all initiatives and partnerships stemming from that core value.
Created the PHF website to clearly showcase its mission and work.
Continuously align top-tier partners to the foundation and its projects including like-minded philanthropists, investors, social entrepreneurs, policy experts, engineers, scientists, finance experts, celebrities, etc.
Provide strong, ongoing organizational and programmatic strategy support, partnership-building, and campaign support to all grantees and key partners.
SOME KEY INITIATIVES INCLUDE:
Aligned Intermediary, an investment advisory group created to help institutional investors accelerate investments into climate infrastructure projects and companies.
Oceans 5, a global funders collaborative with the shared goal of improving conservation of the world’s five oceans.
Energy Options Network, an incubator created to expand the portfolio of zero carbon energy technologies to combat climate change.
The TED Mission Blue Voyage to the Galapagos Islands, which brought together over 100 influential scientists, activists, philanthropists, and celebrities seeking smart collaborations and solutions in restoring the health of the oceans. The voyage resulted in tens of millions of new dollars in oceans-related commitments and new high-profile ocean supporters.
