Darin joined the Foundation in 2015 as its chief program and strategy officer. In this role, he led the Board of Directors and staff through a strategic planning process that established the organization’s philanthropic goals and methods for achieving them. He created and filled new staff positions for the program, grants management and communications functions, and developed relationships and fostered partnerships with grantees, philanthropists, and other foundations. Prior to joining the Foundation, Darin worked for the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. There he built and led an international team charged with improving the effectiveness of philanthropy and charities worldwide. Earlier, he served for more than a decade as executive director and co-founder of Heads Up, a provider of academic and enrichment programs that, under his leadership, became the largest AmeriCorps program serving the Washington, D.C. region.

His work and ideas have appeared in the Chronicle of Philanthropy, Stanford Social Innovation Review, and Forbes.com, among other publications.
