Ligia Cravo is a Senior Program Officer at the William Randolph Hearst Foundations, where she has been a member of the grantmaking team since 1996. Working closely with the Foundations' President and their Board of Trustees, her leading responsibilities are to make funding recommendations within the Foundations' four major areas of interest-education, health, arts and culture, and social services-and to contribute to the development of effective philanthropic policies and practices. The Hearst Foundations are national, independent, private philanthropies operating separately from the Hearst Corporation. The Foundations have combined assets of more than $750 million dollars and operate out of their New York Headquarters and a San Francisco Office. Prior to joining the Hearst Foundations, Ligia worked with several nonprofit and philanthropic institutions, including Planned Parenthood Federation of America and the American Express Foundation.
Ligia serves on the Leadership Council of the New York Foundation for the Arts and is a member of the Hispanics in Philanthropy (HIP) Aging Advisory Committee. She is a former Vice-Chair of HIP's Board of Trustees and a former Chair of its National Funders' Collaborative for Strong Latino Communities. Ligia has also served on the Boards of the Brooklyn Philharmonic, the Brooklyn Youth Chorus, Women & Philanthropy, and the Center for Economic and Social Rights. Ligia chaired the Issues Subcommittee for the Council on Foundations' Annual Conferences in 2004 and 2005 and served as a Mentor for the Council's Emerging Leaders Fellowship Program until 2007. She is also a former member of Philanthropy New York's (formerly the New York Regional Association of Grantmakers') Committee to Increase and Diversify Philanthropy, and of the Membership Committee of the Neighborhood Funders Group.
Ligia received a Masters of Science in Social Work Administration from Columbia University in 1991, and a Bachelor of Arts from Mills College in 1986. She is fluent in Portuguese and English and has a moderate knowledge of Spanish and French.
