As a family, we believe in the importance of giving back in the spirit of tikkun olam (humanity's shared responsibility to heal, repair and transform the world). We created The Evan and Tracy Segal Family Foundation to achieve this goal - and we support numerous civic and community organizations.
We are proud to announce the hiring of Marla Werner as the Executive Director of the Evan and Tracy Segal Family Foundation. Working collaboratively with our Board, Marla will focus on launching and running the next phase of strategic growth and development for the Foundation.
As part of this new initiative, we will be developing a strategic plan that will refine the foundation’s mission and focus areas - as well as determine strategies to advance the foundation’s philanthropic vision. As a team, the Foundation will engage in grantmaking and partnership work that has maximum impact, makes a difference in the world, provides leadership, and leverages the family’s philanthropic endeavors.
Marla comes to the Foundation with 20+ years of experience in sales, marketing, strategic planning and development. Marla has worked with both non-profit organizations and for-profit businesses, creating sustainable growth strategies that empower organizations to reach their highest potential. Marla will continue lead to MPower (her creative growth strategy agency) while taking on the position of Executive Director.
