It’s official: Patrick Morgan, chief of staff in Philadelphia’s Office of the Deputy Mayor for Environmental and Community Resources, will be taking over Donna Frisby-Greenwood‘s old post as program director in Philadelphia at the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.
In his municipal capacity, Morgan worked to enhance community food systems and the city’s tree canopy. Recently, Morgan worked on the Green2015 initiative, a public-private partnership dedicated to creating new open public spaces throughout the city.
He also project managed Philly311, the city’s round-the-clock service center.
“Patrick has a terrific track record of advancing transformative change in Philadelphia. He has been on the frontlines of efforts to make Philadelphia a city where talent thrives and residents have places to connect and contribute to neighborhood life,” said Knight Foundation president Alberto Ibargüen in a statement.
In his new position, Morgan will be tasked with investing in “opportunities that build on the city’s vibrancy and make it a place where talent thrives,” according to the release.
“Knight Foundation has a strong record of supporting transformational work in Philadelphia,” Morgan said. “I look forward to working collaboratively with many partners to create new opportunities and deeper partnerships to continue advancing the city’s growth.”-30-
