Rockefeller Director to Offer Philanthropic Pep Talk
Tuesday, February 20, 2018


Learn how to make significant change through philanthropy when the Wood River Women’s Foundation presents its annual Winter Forum.

The forum will feature Lukas Haynes, executive director of the David Rockefeller Fund. It will be held at the Community School Theater at 5 p.m. Monday, Feb. 26. Admission is $20, available online at

Haynes is widely regarded for his work in several areas, including climate change solutions, technology for social change, arts and human rights.

Prior to joining the David Rockefeller Fund, he served at the Mertz Gilmore Foundation, opened the first New York office of the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation and was a speechwriter or Secretary of State Madeleine Albright.

He also is a trustee of Protect Our Winters, dedicated to saving the snow sports industry from climate change.

Haynes will describe ways in which individual institutional and collaborative donors can make the most of limited resources and utilize grants and other investments in support of non-profits, communities and sustainable social change.

The Wood River Women’s Foundation engages women in the power of collective giving. The organization currently has more than 300 members who award their pooled donations to nonprofits each year. To date the women have awarded nearly $2 million to more than 50 Blaine County nonprofits.
