Welcome, friends of

General Service Foundation

We are pleased to announce that GSF has hired Dimple Abichandani as our new executive director. Throughout her career, Dimple has championed disenfranchised people's agency and rights; has created professional environments that prioritize learning, experimentation and risk taking; and has infused social justice values in every community she touches. We trust her to lead us with fresh eyes and a collaborative spirit, and we're excited to embark on this new chapter with her leadership. Dimple began her work on August 24.
