Meet the CEO: Richard Woo Some people call Richard a seasoned grantmaker. But he prefers the word "marinated", given how many years he's been at this work.
Before joining The Russell Family Foundation in 2000, Richard worked for nearly twelve years at Levi Strauss & Co. in San Francisco in community relations, corporate social responsibility and philanthropy. He finished his company time as executive director of the Levi Strauss Foundation. Earlier in his career, Richard spent fourteen years working on community health and youth development in Northern California nonprofit organizations.
Richard serves on the board of directors of Philanthropy Northwest and is a member of the Visiting Committee for the Masters in Nonprofit Leadership Program at Seattle University. He is a past board member of Northern California Grantmakers, Asian American and Pacific Islanders in Philanthropy and the Council on Foundations.
We invite you to watch this brief video as Richard talks candidly about curiosity, risk-taking and learning.
"The act of giving is about putting your money where your heart is...when you do that then you are aligning your passions with your words and ultimately your actions. And that is what we are trying to do here as a Foundation, is to try to bring all of those things into alignment."
