Selected Initiatives and Projects

Digital Government Challenge


As Chair of the Los Angeles County Productivity Investment Board, I designed and shepherded a $100,000 funding challenge based on the Quality and Productivity Commission’s 2015 report, Digital by Default: Leveraging Software as a Service for Accessibility and Impact. The winning project, submitted by the Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk with the Internal Services Department, will onboard a new live webchat customer service system as a website pop-up.

Connected to Give


Description Connected to Give was a collaborative project of a consortium of independent foundations, family foundations, community foundations, and Jewish federations working in partnership with Jumpstart to map the landscape of charitable giving by Americans of different faith traditions. I managed the steering committee of more than a dozen funders and chaired the research team for the project, which produced six reports (five of which I co-authored).
