We’re excited to announce that Timi Gerson, strategic advocacy and communications consultant at Gerson Strategies, will be NCRP’s new Vice President and Chief Content Officer beginning May 21.

Timi will oversee NCRP’s research and assessment efforts as well as public policy campaigns, which for more than 40 years has been used to push foundations to be more accountable, transparent and responsive. Recently, NCRP has released:

  • As the South Grows, a series of reports with Grantmakers for Southern Progress exploring the challenges and opportunities for progressive change work in the South.
  • Power Moves, a guide for foundations to self-assess how well they are building, sharing and wielding power and identify ways to transform programs and operations for lasting, equitable impact.

“I am very excited that Timi is joining NCRP to lead our content team. Her commitment to supporting grassroots social justice work is impressive, and her communications and advocacy experience will be a great benefit to NCRP’s work promoting philanthropy that is responsive to those with the least wealth and opportunity.” 

– Aaron Dorfman, President and CEO, NCRP

Timi will use the goals and strategies laid in out in NCRP’s 10-year strategic framework, released in late 2016, to inform future content.

Under the strategic framework, NCRP provides social justice movements and their current and potential funders with useful resources that will help increase impact and win important campaigns. We are also expanding programming to encourage wealthy donors to give in ways that promote equity and justice.

“NCRP’s vision and values deeply align with my own. We share a belief in the power of collective action for the public good, a commitment to accountability, transparency and inclusivity, and a focus on results, not rhetoric. I am thrilled to be joining their work to transform the philanthropy sector at a time when it is more urgent and relevant than ever.”
