Genevieve Laca

Director of Engaged Philanthropy

Pronouns: she/her

Genevieve’s passion is inviting all to philanthropy – working with individuals, businesses, and nonprofits to realize their full impact. Whether it’s a giving circle grants meeting, a company’s giving strategy plan, or a nonprofit’s moment of seeding their new endowment, she feels so honored to be a part of these special moments. She has an M.A. in Philanthropic Studies from the Lilly School of Philanthropy, an MPA in Nonprofit Management from IU, and a CSR Certification from the CU Leeds Business School.

She is an avid baker and cook, using both passions to honor her Mexican, Black, Spanish, and British roots. Her personal energy is focused on LGBTQIA+ rights, special needs advocacy, and higher education access for BIPOC individuals.

Come to Genevieve if you have questions about the Community Grants Program, if you’re opening a new fund or need current fund support, if you have giving circle questions, or if you’re looking for a great recipe or science fiction novel recommendations.
