Risa Blumlein Keeper

I am a nonprofit leader with 18 years experience in the sector as a grantmaker, consultant, and senior staff in finance, development and programs. I rely on my artistic experiences as a writer, storyteller, acrobat and former professional dancer to remain creative and flexible in my thinking. I bring to all of my work a unique combination of financial expertise, novel programmatic approaches, confidence as a public speaker, strong collaborative skills, and deep roots as a fifth generation San Franciscan. As a white, privileged individual I am committed to acting in allyship by leveraging my power, influence and access to advocate for and advance systems change for Black, Indigenous, other POC, and other disinvested communities in the Bay Area through the design and implementation of innovative and reparative capital programs.
