Resources for the Future (RFF) is announcing the selection of Greg McGovern to serve as its new Vice President for Development.
RFF President Richard Newell said, “Greg McGovern fully appreciates the vital importance of RFF’s work on behalf of a healthier environment and a thriving economy. We look forward to benefitting from his experience and support.”
Said McGovern, “I’m delighted to join RFF’s community of staff, scholars, board members, and supporters at a time where nonpartisan, fact-based, and economically feasible environmental policy analysis and design are needed more than ever.”
He added, “It’s not too dramatic to say that there are no policy issues more pressing for civilization than those being addressed at RFF. It’s an honor to serve and advance their mission at such a critical moment in our shared history.”
McGovern brings to RFF an extensive background in nonprofit resource development. He most recently served as the Vice President for Development at the Brookings Institution. Before that, he served in a host of fundraising roles for organizations ranging from the American Red Cross to the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater.
McGovern holds an MS in Nonprofit and Fundraising Management from Columbia University and a BFA from The Theatre School at DePaul University.
