Katy Moore

CEO

Katy Moore serves as the first Chief Executive Officer for the Virginia Funders Network and is responsible for driving the organization’s vision, mission, and outcomes in partnership with the Advisory Board. Katy joined the VFN in February 2021, bringing more than 15 years of experience in the field of philanthropy at the local, regional, and national levels. Over the course of her career, Katy has worked with hundreds of grantmaking organizations and individual philanthropists driving collaboration, education, and innovation to achieve greater community impact. For more than a decade, Katy served at the center of the greater Washington, DC region’s philanthropic community, as Managing Director of Corporate Strategy for the Washington Regional Association of Grantmakers (WRAG). During Katy’s tenure, she partnered with the WRAG team and leadership to transition the organization from a traditional membership association into one of that region’s leading social sector voices. She also helped transform the organization’s revenue model through the design and launch of mission-driven, revenue-generating programs and projects. Prior to WRAG, Katy led the philanthropic field’s first-ever effort to self-regulate and establish standards of practice as the head of the National Standards for U.S. Community Foundations Initiative at the Council on Foundations. This built on her previous success helping to establish the Fayetteville Arkansas Community Foundation as one the organization’s first staff members. Katy is also active in her community holding numerous volunteer leadership roles, including serving on the boards of Leadership Greater Washington and Many Hands DC, and serving as a member of the grants committee for Kaiser Permanente of the Mid-Atlantic States.
