Donna Frisby-Greenwood Named First President and CEO of The Fund for the School District of Philadelphia

Frisby-Greenwood will be the Fund's second full-time executive.

The Fund for the School District of Philadelphia, which generates, directs and manages private philanthropic resources in response to the goals of the School District of Philadelphia, has appointed Donna Frisby-Greenwood as its first president and CEO. Frisby-Greenwood, who will begin the position on May 1, will be the second full-time executive of the fund alongside current executive director Angela Connor.

“In Donna, we have a president of impressive ability, who is deeply committed to our mission of serving the School District of Philadelphia,” said Sheldon Bonovitz, Chairman of the Fund’s board of trustees and Chairman Emeritus of Duane Morris LLP, in a press release. “With extensive experience in both the public education and nonprofit sectors, Donna is particularly suited to head the Fund.”

Frisby-Greenwood served as the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation‘s program director for Philadelphia, starting in 2010, where she focused on retaining talented people and expanding economic opportunity in the city. Prior to working for the Knight Foundation, she was the director of the School District of Philadelphia’s Office of College and Career Awareness.

“It is an honor to serve the children of our great city,” said Frisby-Greenwood. “We have the opportunity to grow our talent base and help keep more families here by helping the School District of Philadelphia turn around low-performing schools and sharing the stories of the great public schools that already exist. No matter their ZIP codes, all children deserve an equal chance to succeed. I look forward to working with the Fund’s board and executive director, along with the school district, to achieve these goals.”
