The Tow Foundation is pleased to announce that Diana Echevarria has joined its team as senior program officer.
In her newly created role, Diana will work closely with the president of the Foundation and the program team to envision, identify and cultivate potential grant opportunities and support the Foundation’s overall philanthropic strategy.
With extensive experience leading strategic partnerships and programs, Diana brings a collaborative, equity-centered approach to program creation and expansion at the Foundation.
“Diana comes to the Foundation at a very exciting time,” said Emily Tow, president of The Tow Foundation. “We are thrilled to have her wide-ranging expertise on staff as we continue to grow our grantmaking and prioritize philanthropic innovation.”
