A look back at my first year at the Barr Foundation.
This week marks a year since my arrival as Barr’s president. Since last May, I have sought to use this space to provide regular updates and will continue to do so. Yet, this one-year mark also offers an appropriate time to reflect upon the broader evolution of the Barr Foundation.
Among the many reasons I relocated from San Francisco to Boston was the opportunity to work for a foundation with a strong reputation, poised for its next stage of evolution. During the past year, I have met with our many partners across the nonprofit, philanthropic, public, and private sectors, and I have seen first-hand the progress and impact of activities that Barr has been privileged to support in its arts and culture, climate, education, and global programs.
